BELFAST, ERETTA CROCE DI LEGNO NEI PRESSI DI GRAFFITI SETTARI
A wooden cross has been erected next to anti-Catholic graffiti in Belfast.
The sectarian message, scrawled on a wall on the Donegall Road, reads ‘Taigs will be dealt with, VTOT’.
It is close to where an armed gang posed next to ‘crucify Catholics’ graffiti, that was circulated on social media on Monday.
That chilling image, taken close to the Broadway roundabout and Royal Victoria Hospital, is currently being investigated by the PSNI. They have appealed to the public for information.
Both messages are ‘signed’ ‘VTOT’ which is believed to stand for ‘Village Team On Tour’, in reference to a gang based in the staunchly loyalist area of south Belfast.
Meanwhile Nazi flags, erected alongside Confederate and paramilitary flags near a loyalist bonfire in Carrickfergus, have been taken down.
East Antrim DUP MP Sammy Wilson has welcomed the removal of the Nazi flags.
