The homes of two Indian families have been attacked in what police were today treating as hate crimes.
The racist attacks were carried out in Portadown last night - no-one was injured.
They were launched just 48 hours after a multi-agency campaign involving police and government was launched in a bid to cut down the high number of hate crimes being recorded in Northern Ireland.
In the first incident the front windows of a house in Princess Way were smashed while the Indian occupants, a couple and their two children, were inside.
A short time later three windows were smashed in a house around the corner in Princess Gardens. No-one was at home at the time.
A police spokeswoman said: "We are treating both incidents as hate crimes."
Police appealed for anyone who witnessed the attacks or knew anything about them to contact them or to use the confidential telephone.
