Police appeal for information after North petrol bomb attacks
Two separate petrol bombings have taken place in the last 24 hours in the North.

POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland have appealed for information after two separate petrol bomb attacks in Foyle and Lisburn over the last 24 hours.

In the first incident, a petrol bomb was thrown at the door of a house in the Fenn Park area of Foyle just after 11.15am yesterday.

Three men were inside the house at the time and were later treated for smoke inhalation. Their injuries are not said to be life threatening.

Meanwhile, two cars were petrol bombed in the Banfield Grange area of Lisburn just after 1.30am this morning.

One of the vehicles had its rear window smashed and the back of the car damaged. A petrol bomb also struck the rear of the second car.

Anyone with any information related to either of the two incidents has been asked to contact the PSNI on 0845 600 8000 or if they would prefer to remain anonymous, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
