21 Oct 2007 filed by conor - Chile
There has been petrol bombs and other missiles thrown by a large number youths at the p.s.n.i. in the Edward st. area of lurgan on Saturday night and tonight.
The riots broke out when a number of unionist youths came down to the nationalist area of Edward st. beside the Shankill estate. The youths broke a number of winows of the houses on the nationalist street. The police arrived later to inspect the crime scene when a large group of youths from the nationalist side started throwning fireworks and stones at the Landrover. After the police left the youths started throwing bricks at the nearby McDonalds restaurant window, smashing it, McDonalds closed the store early because they were worried for the safety of their customers. The police arrived in Landrovers some time later and were targeted by the youths with petrol bombs and bricks. Several car windows were smashed during the riots and three men from the Shankill estate were arrested.Tags:
