Sinn Féin leader in the north Michelle O’Neill has condemned the Manchester attack and expressed sympathy with the families of those killed and injured.
Michelle O’Neill said:
“The attack at the Manchester arena which has left 22 dead and injured so many others was horrific and I condemn it.
“I, like many others, watched with shock and horror as the events unfolded overnight and the scale of this terrible attack became known.
“For something like that to happen while young people are out enjoying themselves is unthinkable.
“My thoughts are with the families and friends of all those who have lost loved ones and those who were injured, as well as the emergency services who attended the scene of this tragedy.
“Sinn Féin has cancelled all election campaigning for the day.”
