A republican plot in Milltown cemetery in west Belfast has been desecrated with Combat 18 slogans.

"Overnight, racist and sectarian slogans, along with Combat 18 graffiti, were daubed on the republican plot in the cemetery," said Sinn Féin MLA Paul Maskey.

"A considerable amount of damage has been done to the graves."

A PSNI spokeswoman said officers were not aware of the attack, but added they would follow up any reports made.
