Three people have been arrested tonight as police confirmed 21 officers have been injured in violent clashes in Belfast this week.
Twenty-one officers have been injured so far this week dealing with this disorder. That's 21 officers who have been pulled away from their roles of protecting the community. This is unacceptable.
This behaviour is simply not acceptable. These people are only wrecking their own communities and putting innocent people's lives at risk.
This mob violence and intimidation cannot be allowed to continue and I am urgently appealing to politicians and those with community influence in these areas to do what they can to put a stop to this behaviour now before someone is seriously injured or killed.
