A cyclist has been pelted with faeces in a hate attack in east Belfast.

The Romanian man was cycling countrywards on the Newtownards Road on Wednesday morning when a man dressed in dark clothing came over and threw faeces around him.

The victim was taken to hospital for treatment.

Police said the man ran off towards the Island Resource Centre. They have asked anyone who witnessed the incident, which happened at about 9.15am, to contact them.

@ observer online, these racist attacks are NOT being carried out by EVERYONE in Belfast (I noticed you put BOTH SIDES into your comment albeit about the rioting, clever use of words there) and it's NOT exclusive to Belfast alone, you need to get your facts correct before sending in silly comments. These attacks are being carried out by loyalists in loyalist areas throughout Northern Ireland..........dont believe me? Its well documented try googling, I did, got my facts correct, and now I can comment on it without sounding silly.

Why are UTV steadfastly refusing to publish my posts outlining that statistically, factually, evidentially, in fact whichever way you want to look at it, an overwhelming loyalist problem???

Sandra in New York==People all over this city are intimidated and afraid to speak out. Do you think that when punishment beatings/ shootings happen that some people don't know who the perpetrators are? Do you think when joy riders steal and wreck cars some people don't know who they are?. Do you think some people don't know who the drug dealers are in different parts of the town? When petrol bombs are thrown or pipe bombs planted do you think some people don't know who is doing it?It's a pity you left your home town. You should have stayed and you could be the one to'' show and tell'' so the monsters who do these things can be arrested and thrown behind bars for a week or two then come and visit you when they are released. OH WAIT maybe you can stay where you are and gripe about Belfast from a distance and MICHAEL in BELFAST will do it the' show and tells'. for you.
