July 13, 2012

Northern Ireland police said at least 10 gunshots were fired at officers during rioting in north Belfast early today. No one was injured.

The shots were fired during riots in the Ardoyne area of the city, in which petrol bombs and other missiles were thrown by nationalists after a Protestant parade passed by the Catholic area, a police spokesman said in a recorded phone message. The shots were fired at about 12:30 a.m.
