Attacks on children 'demonic'.
Canon Andrew White, the head of Coventry Cathedral's centre for peace and reconciliation, condemned the scenes of aggression around Holy Cross primary school.
He has twice visited Ulster in the past two years.
Last year he travelled there for the unveiling of a replica of Coventry's Reconciliation statue in the grounds of Stormont, home of the Northern Ireland Assembly.
But he has been dismayed by images this week of terrified children running a gauntlet of hate as they walk to school along the bitterly divided Ardoyne Road.
Yesterday he said: "Any inter-community or inter-religion violence is horrific, but when aggression is targeted at children it moves into the realm of demonic."
