Petrol bomb
This video shows the moment a masked rioter throwing petrol bomb at passing van in Derry yesterday. The incident happened at the Lecky Road in the Bogside which has witnessed sustained violence for almost a week. Over 70 petrol bombs were thrown during last night's trouble, where police fired a number of plastic bullets. The video shows a masked youth lighting the petrol bomb before walking up to a passing van and throwing the petrol bomb directly at the windscreen. The device explodes but fortunately does not shatter the windscreen. Watch the footage here - [video width="400" height="224" mp4="upload/2018/07/13092558/Van-attack.mp4"][/video]
