Two men who were arrested in east Belfast on Monday have been released.

Police arrested the two men over threats which forced four Catholic families from their homes in Belfast.

The two men, aged 37 and 40, arrested under the Terrorism Act, on suspicion of membership of a proscribed organisation, have been released pending a report to the PPS.

Four families were forced from their homes after police officers warned threats had been made against them. Chief Constable George Hamilton said the UVF was to blame.
