Second arrest over Gerry Adams home attack

By David Young

A second man has been arrested in connection with an attack on the home of former Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams.

The 46-year-old was detained yesterday on suspicion of a number of offences, including criminal damage, linked to incidents at the homes of Mr Adams and fellow Sinn Fein member Bobby Storey.

A 35-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday night in connection with the same investigation. He was released on bail yesterday morning pending further police inquiries.

Explosive devices were hurled at the west Belfast homes of Mr Adams and Mr Storey last Friday night, with Sinn Fein condemning the "reprehensible and cowardly" attacks.

No-one was injured, but a car in the driveway of Mr Adams' home was damaged.

Police said the remnants of large, industrial firework-type devices were found at both properties.
