After careful investigation, police have stated that the Bomb attack on officers in Northern Belfast last Saturday, was a “sophisticated device with the intent to kill.”
Though it is too early to assign responsibility for the attacks, Detective Chief Inspector, Karen Baxter, said they were treating it as a terrorist attack.
