A thwarted car bomb murder bid on a policeman in Northern Ireland has been condemned as "an attack on the entire community" by Stormont's Justice Minister David Ford.
Police have blamed dissident republicans for placing the viable device under the officer's car in east Belfast. Mr Ford said:
Fortunately, due to the officer's commendable vigilance, the attempt on his life was not successful.
Let us be clear. This was an attack not only on a police officer and his family but on our whole community. The officer was serving the community; he was working for all of us.
