Ulster Unionists have condemned a spate of racist attacks which took place in East Belfast overnight.
Michael Copeland MLA said:
“There is absolutely no justification for targeting the homes or property of foreign nationals. It is totally unacceptable that anyone should be subject to attack or intimidation because of their race, religion or nationality.
“Those responsible for last night’s attacks need to seriously consider the impact it has on the image of East Belfast.’
Cllr Chris McGimpsey said:
“This was a highly organised, concerted attack and these racist thugs are a blight on our society.
“I hope that the PSNI will be fully supported in their investigations into these attacks and I would appeal to anyone with any information to provide it to the police.
