BDTV: 32 POLICE OFFICERS INJURED DURING RIOTING IN BELFAST

 

 

THE PSNI say 32 police officers – including two from the UK – were injured during six hours of rioting in Belfast.

It followed a decision by the Parades Commission to ban the return leg of a march by Orangemen past the Ardoyne shops in north Belfast.

The police inforced the ruling and loyalists vented their anger on PSNI riot squad lines.

One police woman sustained a fractured leg.

The PSNI said officers came under attack a number of loyalists brandishing ceremonial swords.

Police responded with water cannon and 20 plastic baton rounds.

Two female civilians were injured by the AEPS.

The scenes were captured on the PSNI’s ‘Hawkeye’ heli-teli camera system perched high above the trouble.

Now watch the video.
