Two women injured in east Belfast rioting

Two women have been taken to hospital following the latest spate of street violence in east Belfast.

The women received injuries when an acid bomb was allegedly thrown from the nationalist Clandeboye Drive area into the loyalist Cluan Place on the Albertbridge Road.

Shortly afterwards, a pipe bomb was thrown over the peace wall from Cluan Place, landing in the garden of a Catholic home. No injuries were reported.

Stone and fireworks were also thrown from both sides of the interface during the rioting which started at around 10pm last night.
