Sinn Fein has welcomed moves by loyalist communities in east Belfast to remove sectarian graffiti and paramilitary murals from walls in their areas.

Speaking at the Forum for Peace and Reconciliation in Dublin, local councillor Joe O'Donnell described the moves as positive.

Mr O'Donnell insisted that any violence emanating from the nationalist community in east Belfast was retaliatory.
