Police are looking at a possible racist link to a petrol bomb attack on a house occupied by members of the Polish community.
Two petrol bombs were thrown at around 1.45am yesterday at the house in Charcoal Way, Cullyeackey in North Antrim.
The devices caused minor scorch damage to a window. Four people were inside the house – three of them were Polish.
Detectives in Ballymena appealed to members of the public with information to come forward and help their investigation.
The police were also investigating arson attacks on two cars in Newtownabbey on the outskirts of Belfast. Both incidents occurred in Fernagh Avenue.
A Mazda car was set alight in the first incident at around midnight and two hours later a Renault was also destroyed in a blaze. Police again were investigating a racist motive.
