Unionist petrol bombers in Newington

An Phoblacht

02 February 2006

Two nationalist families had lucky escapes after a unionist gang from the Tigers' Bay area of North Belfast attacked their homes with petrol bombs on Tuesday night, 24 January.

One petrol bomb caused scorch damage to the upper floor of a house in Parkend Street while another landed on the pavement in Newington Street off the Limestone Road.

Sinn Féin Councillor Caral Ní Chuilin said nationalist residents are very concerned about ongoing sectarian attacks at the North Belfast interface and called for interface workers to continue to work together to stop attacks.

"It is my understanding that interface workers from both sides were in contact with each other after these sectarian attacks and that measures were taken to ensure the situation was brought under control. I very much welcome and encourage this extremely vital work and commend all those involved."
