Mullan slams Fountain petrol bomb attack

Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has hit out at those behind a petrol bomb attack on the Fountain Estate during overnight disturbances on Thursday.

“Those who carried out the petrol bomb attack on the Fountain and the Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall are the same people who caused destruction and disruption in the Bogside overnight and into Friday morning.

“They represent no-one and no cause. They are well known in the area as being involved in ongoing anti-social and community behaviour.

“The sectarian attack on the Fountain and the mayhem caused in the Bogside is despicable and an attack on the people who live in both those areas. It should be condemned and the those behind it should get off the backs of the community.”
