Two Latvian men have been seriously injured in an attack outside a pub in Co Tyrone that the PSNI are treating as a hate crime.

The pair were targeted by a group of men outside the bar in the town of Coalisland at around 9pm on Easter Sunday.

Police said the victims, aged in their 30s, sustained cuts and bruises as well as possible facial fractures in the attack on Main Street.

PSNI inspector Neil Beck said: "The victims of this assault are both Latvian nationals and we are treating the incident as a hate crime.
