Driver sought in paint bomb probe

.

Police investigating a paint bomb attack on an Islamic centre in Northern Ireland have asked a motorist who was in the area at the time to come forward.

The driver of a silver car was seen in the area of Wellington Park in Belfast when a milk bottle filled with paint was thrown at the building at around 10pm on Thursday.

Two teenage boys were seen running away from the area. No one was injured in the attack, which is being treated as a hate crime.

The PSNI said they we would like to speak to the driver of the silver car spotted at the scene.

A number of mosques were attacked in England last week after the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich in London.
