Boy held over 'petrol bomb attack'

A teenage boy has been arrested by police investigating reports of a petrol bomb being thrown in East Belfast.

Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) officers were called to Cluan Place just before 8pm on Sunday.

They removed an object for further examination. There are no reports of any injuries.

A spokeswoman said: "A short time later, police arrested a 15-year-old male on suspicion of possession of a petrol bomb, attempted arson and possession of a class B drug. The area is quiet and police are carrying out proactive patrolling as normal."
