Ross Hussey MLA, Ulster Unionist Policing spokesperson, has condemned those who carried out tonight`s gun attack on police officers in the Andersonstown area of west Belfast
Mr Hussey said:
"This was a cowardly attack on officers serving the community. Terrorism is terrorism wherever it occurs. I am thankful that the officers escaped injury, but it could have been a whole lot worse. The reckless nature of this attack meant that anyone in the vicinity could have been killed or injured.
“Not only were police officers put at risk, but so were members of the local community. I would appeal to anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible so that the perpetrators can be brought before the courts."
