Pair to appear on riot charges

Two men have been charged with riotous assembly and throwing a petrol bomb during Twelfth of July violence.

The suspects, aged 24 and 18, were expected to appear at Belfast Magistrate's Court today.

It follows serious disorder in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast when police came under attack from a mob and responded with baton rounds and water cannon. The charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.
