The latest in a long line of attacks on a memorial to three dead soldiers has been condemned.

The commemorative stone in White Brae, part of the Ligoniel area of north Belfast, was found to have been painted with the initials ONH (standing for dissident paramilitary group Oglaigh na hEireann).

The stone is a tribute to the Scottish trio killed by the IRA in 1971.

North Belfast DUP MLA William Humphrey said the vandalism, discovered on Friday, was the 13th attack on this memorial since it was erected by Royal British Legion in 2010, and branded the campaign against the monument “evil”.
