Family escapes petrol bomb attack

Published 20/04/2008

The PSNI are investigating an attack on a house in Co Tyrone, after a bomb was thrown at a front window of the home in Millburn Park shortly after midnight.

A car belonging to one of the people living in the house was found ablaze a short time later.

SDLP MLA Patsy McGlone said: "They are badly shaken up. Their car is completely torched.

"The clear message must go out that these people from Lithuania are doing nothing different to what generations of people from this country have done... go abroad to earn their keep for themselves and their families.

"To see them come through this is really disastrous."

No one was injured in the attack, and the PSNI is appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
