Brian Feeney highlights a particularly nasty form of attack, that has been a growing modus operandii for a number of sectarian attacks. The perpetrator sets light to the oil drum of a central heating system outside the house, which can create havoc inside the house and leave the attackers unharmed. He goes on to bemoan the increasing unwillingness of the PSNI to define any one given attack as sectarian.
