The World

December 07, 1987

Clashes across Northern Ireland among protesters, police and troops injured 10 people and led to 11 arrests. In Londonderry, police said eight people were hurt and three were arrested after a dummy bomb was used to lure officers and soldiers to the city center, where they were pelted with rocks. A spokesman for the Royal Ulster Constabulary said plastic bullets were fired to disperse the crowd. In Belfast, three Protestants were arrested after a man's throat was slashed, and two other men were held when gasoline bombs were thrown at police, who escaped injury. In Craigavon, three men were arrested after an assault with a sawed-off shotgun, but no further details were given.
