Police probe after bomb attacks

Police have said they are investigating a possible racial motive for pipe bomb attacks on two homes in County Armagh.

The houses at Brooke Manor and Milltown in Ahorey are occupied by Lithuanians who work in a nearby poultry factory.

A family of four, including a ten-year- old boy were in one house. Three young men live in the other.

The devices were put through the letter boxes of the houses shortly after midnight. Minor damage was caused in the explosions, but no-one was injured.

The area was cordoned off while Army technical officers examined the scene. A number of items were taken away.

Police have appealed for information.
