    Background: A large crowd of demonstrators gathered today (Sunday) in a Catholic area of Belfast to protest at the treatment of friends and relatives arrested in connection with the recent bloody rioting in the city. The demonstration passed off peacefully, but later about 50 women, who had defied security forces by wearing the uniform of the banned Irish Republican Army, attacked an army post with bottles and stones.

    Later still a man was shot in the stomach and there were reports that a military policeman had been burned to death in a patrol vehicle near Londonderry, Northern Ireland's other main trouble-spot.
