Twitterbox: Belfast riots

@squinteratn Best wishes to our friend and colleague Niall Carson (right), shot last night in the thigh.

He walked into cop car -- they make 'em tough in Lenadoon.

@EamonnMallie First Minister Peter Robinson has cleared his desk and is available to speak with anyone who wants to talk to help end E/Belfast rioting.

@alextomo In E Belfast -- all sides say new management in UVF is cause of rioting

@okmick So sad that when Northern Ireland should be celebrating a historic day w/ Rory McIlroy's famous win, East Belfast sees worst riots in years.

@LeoTraynor Extremely disturbing reports from Belfast re: mobs of masked loyalists attacking homes & a chapel in Short Strand. #tweetni Confirmed by BBC.
