The World

July 07, 1986

About 150 Protestants stoned and attacked police for preventing two militant politicians from joining a parade through a Roman Catholic area in the Northern Ireland city of Portadown. No one was seriously injured, police said. The parade was disrupted again when marchers were stoned as they walked through a Catholic area of town in the first major parade of the traditional Protestant marching season. The marches are held every year to commemorate centuries-old military victories over Catholic forces.
