'Bomb' Blast In Northern Ireland Londonderry City Centre

#1
People Have Escaped Injury After A Small 'Bomb' Exploded In The City Centre Of Londonderry | UK News | Sky News

A suspected bomb has exploded in the centre of Derry in Northern Ireland but no injuries have been reported.

The blast is believed to have taken place inside a building society in Shipquay Street.

Police said the city centre had already been evacuated after they received a telephone warning.

Sinn Fein councillor Gerry MacLochlainn hit out at those behind the attack.

He added: "The people who planted this bomb need to tell the people of Derry how it will contribute to bringing about the new Ireland Republicans are striving for.

"The attack on a building society will not affect the global financial institutions nor the constitutional position of the North of Ireland but will seriously jeopardise jobs in the local economy.

"Not only are the jobs in the local branch now at risk but we will also have an effect on the tourism industry with people feeling Derry is unsafe to travel to.

"The city centre will now be closed for the rest of the day on what is the busiest shopping day of the week and the only people being disrupted by this attack are the citizens of this city.

"Thankfully this was a small device and no injuries and no serious damage was caused and the people who carried out the attack need to realise that they have been rejected by the Republican community and should desist immediately."

there was a coded warning and bomb threat at the NorthWest200 motorbike racing today as well, paddock was evacuated and a suspect package found but as far as I know the races are going ahead (albeit in shitty weather)

There is something sick and supremely hypocritical about this statement. The SF councillor is part of that organisation which for years systematically destroyed many businesses in the city of Londonderry and murdered and terrorised those going about their daily lives.

Change the wording slightly and we could be listening to a public representative of the 1970's after an IRA outrage.

Another example of the irrational and twisted mind of the "republican" movement.

If it is wrong today was it not wrong then?

Luckily jobs in the construction industry seem secure.
