The World

July 16, 1986

Protestants attacked police with firebombs as sectarian violence spread across Northern Ireland for the third day, police said. The worst clashes were in Belfast, where police fired rubber bullets at Protestants hurling firebombs. In one area, real bullets were fired at police but caused no casualties. The violence followed weekend marches commemorating the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, when a victory by Protestants ensured their dominance in the province.
