A Republican Party office in North Carolina has been damaged by fire, and a nearby building spray-painted with a slogan against the party, police say.

A bottle filled with flammable liquid was thrown through the window of the Orange County Republican Party headquarters overnight, the party said.

No-one was hurt, but a security alert was sent to other offices, said state Republican director Dallas Woodhouse.

“Nazi Republicans get out of town or else,” was written on the building.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in a tweet the attack was “horrific and unacceptable”.

But the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, appeared to blame Democratic supporters for the attack.

“Animals representing Hillary Clinton and Dems in North Carolina just firebombed our office in Orange County because we are winning @NCGOP,” he said on Twitter.
