POLICE are investigating after a picture of young girl with a sectarian slogan painted on her forehead was posted to social media.

The snap of the girl – who is believed to be just five years old and from Belfast – has KAT (Kill All Taigs) written in red, white and blue.

The phrase is a sectarian slur used against Catholics.

Belfast-based newspaper The Irish News reported that the girl’s mother said her daughter was among several children who had the phrase painted on their faces at a party.

The mum told the paper she was not at the party, and dismissed concerns her children were being raised to hate Catholics.

“All I say is I have friends and family from both sides of the community,” she told the Irish News.

A PSNI spokesman said: “Police have received a report, enquiries will be carried out to establish if any offences have been committed.”

Alliance MP Naomi Long said the image was “utterly depressing and shocking”.
