Three officers shot during Belfast rioting

From the BBC:

“A total of 27 officers were injured during disturbances – 14 in the New Lodge area of north Belfast and 13 at Broadway in west Belfast.

About 200 people threw petrol bombs, stones and bottles at police during trouble in the Broadway area.

The trouble began at about 2345 BST on Sunday. Police used water canon and fired baton rounds.

At least one car was hijacked and set alight”
