    TELERECORDING

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: British troops shot a rioter dead in Belfast early today (Saturday) at the height of a night of violence in which petrol bombs blazed and a number of soldiers were wounded by gelignite bombs loaded with nails.

    The latest round of street fighting began yesterday (Friday), the second day of a visit by British Home Secretary Reginald Maudling. The Minister returned to London today; he told pressmen that the battle against Catholic extremists would be a long haul, but there was no chance of the British Government relinquishing control over the province.

    This film was shot in Belfast during the night and telerecorded by VISNEWS in London.
