Police injured in rioting

Fifty police officers were injured in relentless weekend rioting across Belfast and beyond, it emerged today.
Loyalist gunmen opened fire on police and soldiers for two nights running as the city's streets were turned into a war zone.

Blast, petrol and paint bombs were hurled at security lines throughout Belfast and parts of Co Antrim and Co Down.
