Justice Minister David Ford has today condemned those responsible for a bomb attack in Shipquay Street in Derry.
David Ford said: "This bomb was left in the centre of a shopping area on a Saturday afternoon as people were going about their normal business. It is an attack on the local community and I condemn it wholeheartedly.
"I want to thank the police for their swift actions in clearing the area. This bomb could clearly have caused death or serious injury so it is a great relief that no-one was injured as a result of these wreckless actions.
"I urge anyone with any information to bring it to the police."
