Sectarian attack

Sinn Fein's Lynn Fleming has extended her support to the teachers, parents and children of St Columba's school in Newbuildings, on the outskirts of Derry, following the latest sectarian attack on the building last week. Sectarian graffiti was painted on the walls and doors of the building.

Newbuildings, a predominantly Protestant estate with a large Catholic community, has seen an upsurge in attacks on Catholics over the past number of years.

Ms Fleming said the attacks on Catholics are ``orchestrated'' and designed to drive Catholics out of the area.
