An attack on a home by a gang of masked men in a loyalist estate in north Belfast has been branded "reckless and sectarian" by Sinn Fein.

The incident took place around 11pm on Wednesday when four masked attackers ransacked a house in Rathcoole.

Yesterday Sinn Fein's Taylor McGrann condemned the attack, urging anyone with information to contact the PSNI.

"This was a reckless, indiscriminate attack which has seen a home completely ransacked by masked men in Rathcoole," he said,

"Thankfully no one was injured in this ruthless attack. Everyone has the right to live free from the fear of intimidation or violence.

"Sectarianism has no place in our society and I call on all political and community leaders to show leadership to end these types of attacks."
