November 24, 2023 By admin Off

It was a violent evening in Dublin following the serious knife attack on a 5-year-old girl that left her and another woman hospitalized with serious injuries. Over 100 people took to the streets, some armed with metal bars, following the announcement that the girl was receiving emergency medical treatment in a Dublin hospital. Clashes with riot police unfolded as some demonstrators set off flares and fireworks, and others looted businesses and damaged police vehicles. According to Irish police, a man in his 50s is a “person of interest” in their investigation, but they have not ruled out any motive for the attack. The extent and nature of the injuries sustained by the victims are still unclear, but police believe it was a standalone incident. They also applaud the members of the public who intervened in the situation. Justice Minister Helen McEntee urged calm, stating that the violence in the city center “cannot and will not be tolerated.”
