Monday is typically a quiet night but not so this year's shortest night in Belfast, which saw:
- Racist attacks on immigrant families in Whiteabbey
- Renewed racist and sectarian attacks on homes in the Donegall Road area of south Belfast
- The second sectarian bomb attack on the home of north Belfast community worker Mary Kelly in recent weeks
Coincidence - or a co-ordinated display of loyalist 'muscle' ahead of this year's Twelfth celebrations?
