Alliance Leader David Ford has stated that police officers could have been killed in a petrol bomb attack on their vehicle outside the Alliance Party Office of Naomi Long MP.
The PSNI serve everybody in the community. There can never be any justification for any attack on our police officers.
This attack served no purpose and must be condemned by all. Tonight we could have been looking at the deaths of police officers. This was an attempt to kill police officers.
While I respect the right to peaceful protest, it is clear that there is a need for these protests to end due to the violence and the increased tensions on the streets.
