Derry man says petrol bombers cowards

The owner of a car which was destroyed in a petrol bomb attack in Londonderry has said those responsible are cowards.

The attack happened in the Balbane Pass area just after midnight.

The owner, who did not want to be identified, said he had no idea why he was targeted.

He said he was just about to get into bed when he heard his car being attacked. "I looked out and just saw a big fireball," he said.

"I haven't given anybody any cause - if I even knew why (it happened)."
