Car Bomb Attack in Belfast

The girlfriend of a policeman has been injured in a car bomb attack in East Belfast. The device went off when she reversed her car out of the drive-way at 07:30 this morning. She has been taken to hospital with relatively minor injuries. Whilst it is a great relief that no-one has been killed or seriously injured this is another worrying development. The BBC’s Mark Simpson comments on the fact that up until now dissident Republicans have been relatively inactive in Belfast.

To my mind it would have been apparent that the car in question was the officers partners car, so was this a deliberate attempt to attack not just the one of our police officers, but to attack their loved ones. The people who do these things have no place in our country.
