Petrol bombs have been thrown at our Orange Hall in Belfast.

The attack happened here, Belfast Orange Hall, at Clifton Street, near Carisle Circus this evening.
Four petrol bombs were thrown at the building while about 50 Orangemen attended a meeting inside. No-one was injured and damage was superficial.

A spokesman said:
“Only last week we removed the protective cage from around the hall as a step of faith. However it has only taken a week for people to attack our hall and risk people’s lives. This is very clearly an attempt to create tension in the community. We would appeal for people to remain calm and allow the police to carry out an investigation and find the culprits. Anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area should contact the police immediately.”
