Belfast police use water cannon on Northern Ireland rioters

Rioters have been blasted with water cannon by police on the streets of Belfast as unrest continued into a seventh day. Stones and fireworks were thrown at police by groups of young people who had gathered on the nationalist Springfield Road, close to where riots took place on Wednesday night. After calls for calm this week, there was a heavy security presence, with water cannon, riot officers and police dogs at the scene.
