Bishop of Derry and Raphoe condemns attempted murder of PSNI officer in Omagh as “callous and evil”
The Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, Right Reverend Andrew Forster, has condemned the attempted murder of a police officer in Omagh, on Wednesday evening, as “callous and evil”.
“The attempted murder of a PSNI officer in Omagh, on Wednesday evening, was a crime against God and a crime against man.
The attack was callous and evil and will be condemned by all right–thinking people. There is no justification for this kind of violence in our society. The fact that this happened in close proximity to children highlights the wickedness and recklessness of the perpetrators.
I offer my prayers for the injured officer and his family, and pledge my support to his colleagues in the PSNI. I appeal to anyone with any knowledge about this crime to give the information to the police.”
