A teenage boy has been charged with riotous behaviour in connection with last week's disorder in Derry.

Trouble flared in the city over six consecutive nights with police attacked and scores of petrol bombs thrown.

Northern Ireland political leaders unified in a joint call for the violence to end.

On Monday a 15-year-old boy is to appear in court following his arrest on Saturday.

He is charged with riotous behaviour, throwing petrol bombs, possessing petrol bombs and arson.

As is usual procedure the charges will be reviewed by the Public Prosecution Service.

Three others - aged 17, 22 and 55, have also been charged in connection with offences over the past week.
