A teenager is due in court in Belfast later charged in connection with attacks on Romanian families last month.

The 15-year-old is accused of attacking a house in Belgravia Avenue in the south of the city.

More than 100 people from the Roma community fled their homes following a series of violent incidents.

He was also allegedly involved in attacking an anti-racism rally held in the same week.
