'If You Do Not Stop, Impact Rounds Will Be Fired': Police Warn Crowd to Disperse in Belfast

Police used a water cannon in Belfast, Northern Ireland, during another night of unrest on April 8.

This video, livestreamed to Facebook by Dylan McKee, shows police in a standoff with protesters as they warn the crowd to disperse.

“Attention, attention. This is a police message,” an officer can be heard saying over a loud speaker. “The crowd should disperse immediately as force is about to be used against violent individuals. If you do not stop, impact rounds will be fired.”

Other footage recorded by McKee shows a person throwing an object towards police before being hit by a water cannon.
