    Background: British troops in the Turf Lodge district of Belfast were pelted with stones thrown by children -- many of them not in their teens -- during patrols today (Thursday). Residents had declared the district a "Free Neighbourhood". That means they don't want the soldiers and police patrolling there.

    Troops fired rubber bullets, but later withdrew from the area -- under a renewed hail of missiles. Elsewhere Northern Ireland was relatively quiet. But plans were still going ahead for a new Civil Rights march at the weekend -- despite the shooting of 13 people during a similar march last week.
