Democratic Unionist Party MLA for North Belfast William Humphrey described the pipe bomb attack as an attempt to kill.
This nail bomb was not only a deliberate attempt to further inflame tensions in this area but was an attempt to cause death or serious injury. Fortunately despite this indiscriminate weapon exploding, no injuries were sustained.
Local people have already suffered enough as a result of the trouble within the area. There is absolutely no justification for violence from any quarter, and I would hope that this incident will be treated with the utmost seriousness.
Theresa Villiers, Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, also condemned the "deplorable attack" on police officers.
