TWO men arrested over a double pipe bomb attack on the homes of Romanian families at the weekend have been released unconditionally.
The men – aged 40 and 32 – were arrested on Monday, March 10 in relation to pipe bomb attacks in the Waterside area of the city in the early hours of Saturday, March 8.
Nine people, including a child, escaped injury when devices exploded outside houses in Lapwing Way and Lincoln Courts in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Police said they were treating the attacks as “hate crimes.”
Local police commander Chief Inspector Jonny Burrows said the pipe bombs contained nails which would have caused serious injuries to the homeowners.
