The arrests were made following a spate of incidents on Monday night in which cars and homes were damaged and racist slogans were painted on walls in five locations.

Two men aged 22 and another aged 20, were arrested by police on Wednesday night.

On Thursday morning police released them without charge.

A PSNI spokesman added: "They have all been released on police bail pending further enquiries."

Another 22-year-old was also arrested on Thursday in connection with the attacks.

He was also later released pending further enquiries.
