Violence in Northern Ireland continues as bus petrol bombed

Last night police officers in Northern Ireland came under attack for the third night in a row.

A crowd of loyalist youths in the Shankill Road area of Belfast petrol bombed and then hijacked a double-decker bus.

The youths also threw a variety of objects at PSNI vehicles.

A press photographer working for the Belfast Telegraph newspaper was also assaulted and had his cameras damaged.

Police have urged the public to avoid the area and appealed to anyone with influence “to help restore calm”.
