Three Police Shot in UK - and you won't read of it in London
Three police officers were shot in Belfast on Sunday night.
The two men and one woman were blasted with a shotgun fired by a masked man, who emerged from a crowd of nationalists who attacked the police as traditional Protestant 11th Night celebrations took place.
Another 24 police officers sustained injuries in that and a further separate riot in Belfast last night. Police said none of the injuries was life-threatening.
In south Belfast, police were attacked by petrol bombers as an Orange march passed another traditional flashpoint at the Ormeau bridge.
Elsewhere in the city, a hijacked bus containing a suspicious device was abandoned outside Woodburn police station. It was later declared an elaborate hoax. A car was later hijacked in the Oldpark Road area of north Belfast and found abandoned on nearby Alliance Avenue.
Police said a police officer was taken to hospital after she was struck by a missile in the disturbances.
Other officers were also injured in the disorder. A blast bomb was among the missiles that had been thrown at them.
The London based media will ignore this and shrug it of as boys being boys.....
