DUBLIN (Reuters) – Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said he was “saddened and frustrated” by the hijacking of a van and its driver in Belfast on Friday in an apparent attempt to attack an event he was speaking at on the Northern Ireland peace process.
“Saddened & frustrated that someone has been attacked & victimised in this way and my thoughts are with him & his family,” Coveney said in a Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) post after police closed down the venue where he was due to appear.
