The BBC reports tonight that there have been several cars burnt out and a bus in East Belfast and North Down. A security incident on the Sydenham bypass held passengers inside the city airport, whilst a pipe bomb was deployed in Short Strand. This comes as the PSNI ACC has stated that the UVF intend to orchestrate violence this evening against PSNI officers.
What is the reason that loyalists now have the PSNI in their sights?The incidents come after the police issued a statement on Thursday evening warning that it had information "the East Belfast UVF intend to orchestrate and participate in serious disorder in east Belfast this evening" against police officers.
"I would strongly urge people to desist from engaging in any violent or criminal behaviour," said Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd
