The Sandyrow Bonfire is set alight Monday July 11, 2011 in Belfast, celebrating the Battle of the Boyne in 1690, in which the Protestant William of Orange defeated the Catholic James II. Police say 22 officers have been injured during a night of Catholic rioting in Belfast in advance of mass parades by Protestants. Several hundred Catholic men and youths threw about 40 Molotov cocktails during overnight assaults on police lines. A hijacked bus was driven at one police position but crashed into a fence. Police said they fired 51 plastic bullets and doused rioters with blasts from mobile water cannons. They said the officers' injuries were mostly minor. (AP Photo/Colm O'Reilly) less
