A protest has taken place outside Dublin's GPO this afternoon, following a spate of attacks on foreign students in the city.

It follows a number of attacks by teenagers on foreign nationals in recent weeks, details of which have been posted online.

One person who was at today's protest, says he's been threatened and robbed while living here, with thiefs stealing €2,000 off him.
