Justice Minister praises security operation

Stormont Executive press release - Department of Justice

Justice Minister David Ford has praised the policing operation in the Cullyhanna area of South Armagh and condemned those who planted the mortar type devices.

David Ford said: “Let’s be clear. Those who planted these devices had death on their minds. Their reckless and murderous actions contrast with those of the police and bomb disposal team who have been working to protect the local community. I regret the disruption to those forced to move out of their homes, but it is clear who has caused that.

“If anyone in the community has any information that might help bring the people responsible for this to justice, if they saw anything suspicious, I would ask them to contact the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111 or the police."
