Three people in the house on Donegall Road escaped injury when the device, which caused minor blast damage, was put through the letter box on Monday.

A number of items have been removed for further examination.

Other alerts in the Whiterock area of west Belfast and in the Greencastle area of north Belfast have been declared hoaxes.
