  • Description

    The arrest of civil rights leader Bernadette Devlin has sparked off serious religious rioting in the two Northern Ireland cities of Belfast and Londonderry.

    23-year-old Miss Devlin, Britain's youngest member of Parliament, was ordered off to jail today (June 26) after losing a court appeal.

    Miss Devlin has been sentences to six months for her part in the riots in Londonderry last year.

    At least 12 British soldiers were injured when caught in a crossfire of patrol bombs and stones between Catholic and Protestant factions in Londonderry following news of Miss Devlin's arrest. In the capital of Belfast troops fired tear gas to break up clashes after a parade of 1 1/2-thousand Orangemen marched through the streets.
