Three People Injured In Racist Attack

Three people have been left injured after they were attacked by a gang earlier this week.

The incident, which happened at Lawnmount Street in east Belfast, is being treated as a race hate crime, police have said.

Between 9pm and 9.30pm, two men in their early 20s and a 19-year-old woman were attacked by a gang of around 15 people. The gang, which included a woman, were armed with golf clubs. They assaulted the victims, leaving them with bruises and cuts, while one of the men lost two teeth in the attack.

Police have appealed for information.
