Petrol bombs thrown at police as rioting continues in Northern Ireland


The Irish Taoiseach has warned that Northern Ireland must not be plunged back into “that dark place of sectarian murders and political discord” after another night of violence which left 14 police officers hurt.

In one incident, a burning car was rammed into a police Land Rover, while petrol bombs and missiles were also hurled in what the force called “reckless and dangerous criminal behavior”.
