Irish nationalist gangs have hurled petrol bombs at police on Saturday after three alleged IRA dissidents were arrested on suspicion of killing two British soldiers in an attack designed to trigger wider violence in Northern Ireland.
Police operating in armoured cars and flame-retardant suits said none of their officers were injured during the rising mob violence in the Irish Catholic end of Lurgan, a religiously divided town southwest of Belfast.
Rioters also blocked the main Belfast-to-Dublin railway line that runs alongside the hardline Kilwilkie neighbourhood of the town.
The unrest followed Saturday's arrest of Colin Duffy, 41, the best-known Irish republican in Lurgan.

Kind creepy with the whole IRA thing floating around. That must be a very sensitive acronym in Ireland at the moment.
I think they are insighting fear with this, trying to get the populations to lash out as much as humanly possible in order to justify crowd control type scenarios in the future.
