A 10-year-old and 15-year-old were in the house at the time but escaped unhurt along with the woman.

One of the bombs caused scorch damage to the floor and graffiti was daubed on the back walls of the house.

Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn has condemned those involved in the attack as “thugs” and the PSNI has confirmed it was a hate crime.
