Bus torched in Belfast on sixth night of unrest in Northern Ireland
The loyalist gathering at Lanark Way was organised via social media, with Facebook posts shared on other platforms.
[...]
Since last Friday there has been nightly violence in parts of Northern Ireland, including in Belfast, Derry and parts of county Antrim, fuelled by loyalist anger over a recent decision not to prosecute Sinn Féin leaders over attendance at a mass funeral.

The DUP has expressed fury over the decision, with Foster, its leader, saying it reflects one rule for Sinn Féin and another for ordinary voters who have lost loved ones during the pandemic and have been unable to attend funerals.
[...]
[João Vale de Almeida, the EU ambassador to the UK] said the EU was "fully committed in a constructive way to find solutions for those problems" but it had to be "within the limits of the protocol that we have agreed not long ago".
