Northern Ireland unrest: Boris Johnson ‘deeply concerned’ over violence as bus set on fire

A bus was hijacked and set alight after petrol bombs were thrown at the vehicle on Wednesday evening, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said. The incident occurred at the junction of Lanark Way and Shankill Road in West Belfast, a peace line street which separates loyalist and nationalist areas.

In a tweet, Mr Johnson said: “I am deeply concerned by the scenes of violence in Northern Ireland, especially attacks on PSNI who are protecting the public and businesses, attacks on a bus driver and the assault of a journalist.

“The way to resolve differences is through dialogue, not violence or criminality.”
