A petrol bomb attack on a Sikh temple in Edinburgh is being treated as a hate crime.
No-one was injured in the incident at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib, which is on the corner of Mill Lane and Sheriff Brae in Leith, at 05:05 but the building was damaged.
Detectives believe whoever was responsible deliberately targeted the temple.
Fire caused extensive smoke damage and police have appealed for witnesses.
A committee member at the temple said a holy Sikh scripture inside the building was not damaged as it was upstairs.
