Viable letter bomb sent to senior police officer in Northern Ireland
Bomb sent to Strabane police station -- Postal workers intercepted the letter
DUP MLA Ross Hussey, who sits on the Policing Board added his condemnation.
“It is quite clear that so-called dissident republicans are oblivious to the pleas from across the political spectrum that they cease their activities and leave the rest of society to live in peace. The Police are here to serve and protect the entire community and an attack on one police officer is an attack on all of us,” he said.
The North’s First and Deputy First Ministers described the attack as calculated and callous and have appealed to its residents to help police identify those responsible.
In a joint statement Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness said: “The individuals behind this need to be brought to justice as actions like this have no place in society and those responsible have nothing positive to offer. This was not just a planned attack on a police officer but also on the postal workers involved and society as a whole.
“Violence plays no part in our future. We would appeal to anyone with any information on this to contact the PSNI.”
