She was speaking after a Translink bus was hijacked and attacked in West Belfast during ongoing disturbances.



The Minister said, “Those attacking their own communities and their own public services are achieving nothing.

“And if this doesn’t stop now it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously injured or killed.



“Tonight with deep regret Translink has had to suspend some services in Belfast due to ongoing disturbances.

“Thankfully no one has been hurt in this incident.

“But those responsible for this attack, and ongoing attacks on the police, need to stop and stop now.



“I appeal for calm and call on those destroying their own communities and those fanning the flames to end this recklessness before someone is seriously hurt or killed,” she added.
