Asian man targeted in south Belfast racist attack

More loyalist racism:

An Asian man is recovering this morning after he was beaten by a three-man gang during a racist attack in south Belfast last night.

The victim was attacked at a house in Donegall Avenue shortly before midnight.

He suffered cuts to his face and eye and bruising to the rest of his body after being kicked, punched and hit with a broken bottle.

The PSNI said it was treating the attack as racist and has appealed for witnesses to come forward.

South Belfast and a number of other towns in the North experienced a spate of racist attacks last year blamed on loyalist paramilitaries, but such attacks had subsided in recent months.

Looks like the loyalists have gone back to their old tricks. I wonder if the global media will make as much fuss about this act of violence as they did about the killing of Robert McCartney?
