A brick attack on a bus carrying Chinese tourists visiting Belfast has been condemned as the work of thugs.

The rear window of the private minibus was smashed around 4.45pm yesterday as it drove past Divis tower in west Belfast.

No one was injured in the incident, but the passengers who had arrived by private jet that morning were too upset to continue their tour and spent their first night in Belfast back at the hotel.

Coach driver Mark Coulter was also badly shaken when he was threatened by four male youths when he stopped the vehicle near St Peter’s Cathedral.
