The shop owner said that although he didn’t agree with the terrorist tag on the costumes he added that the clothes were not meant to be insulting.

Bobby Rao, Strabane Ethnic Community Association's representative, said these costumes would damage relations between nationalities in the area. He said “No-one wants to see children in terrorist outfits and they should be removed.”
