Maskey condemns callous sectarian petrol bomb attack

Paul Maskey MP said:

“Last night several petrol bombs were thrown at the home of a young family on the Springfield Road.

“At the time of the attack, a one-year-old child was inside the house.

“I am relieved that no one has been killed or seriously injured in this reckless and callous attack.

“This attack comes in the wake of a campaign of sectarian intimidation carried out against families accessing social housing in North Belfast, and a vicious sectarian campaign of abuse and threats against people standing for public office.

“Organised sectarian violence in our society must be stamped out. 

“Political and community leaders have a responsibility to condemn those behind this hate crime and work tirelessly to bring these attacks to an end.

“Anyone with any information on this reckless and vicious attack should bring it forward to the PSNI.”
