DETECTIVES are investigating after four petrol bombs were thrown at an east Belfast interface.

Police are investigating the attack which happened in the Bryson Street area of the Short Strand at around 10.30pm on Monday night.

No one was injured in the attack.

On Sunday night, five petrol bombs were thrown at Strand Walk on Sunday night.

Loyalist community leaders blamed “outsiders” coming into the area to try and stir up tensions.

Last week, talks were held set up by the Belfast Interface Project between both communities in an attempt to diffuse tensions in the area.

It came after a four-year-old child escaped serious injury after a petrol bomb was thrown over an interface wall into the Short Strand.
