Bomb destroys part of church in Ireland


The parish of Our Lady Star of the Sea in Nunsquarter-Kircubbin in the city of Down (Ireland) has been partially destroyed by a homemade bomb, according to the Police Service of Northern Ireland. 

Officials also reported that they are “trying to determine the motive behind the incident.”  The pastor of the parish, Father Colm McBride, said the person who was responsible for the attack must have acted alone.  “It’s the work of an individual who doesn’t represent anyone except his own disturbed choices,” the priest said, adding, “Here relations are very good.”

The homemade explosive sparked a fire at a window of the parish.
