Violence in Northern Ireland

From the Washington Post:
Gangs of young men threw gasoline bombs and bricks at policemen and set cars and a city bus ablaze in a third night of violence in Protestant districts of Belfast that has injured more than 50 police officers and at least 10 civilians.
The city's worst rioting in years was touched off Saturday when police refused to allow the Orange Order, a legal Protestant fraternal group, to parade through a largely Catholic neighborhood". Click here to read full article.
