Violence breaks out on Northern Ireland streets again despite appeals for calm
Police were attacked during another night of violence and disorder in a number of loyalist areas in Northern Ireland on Monday.
Further unrest swept across parts of Carrickfergus and Londonderry, with petrol bombs and other missiles thrown at officers.
Cars, a JCB digger and a phone box were set alight in the Waterside area of Londonderry.
Officers from the PSNI Tactical Support Group (TSG) attended the loyalist Nelson Drive Estate, where a group of youths clashed with police.
The surrounding roads were blocked with fires and barricades.
Elsewhere, petrol bombs were thrown at police officers in Carrickfergus, near Belfast.
A crowd of young people gathered in the North Road area and lit a fire in the middle of the road.
Petrol bombs were sporadically thrown at police, according to witnesses.
Earlier, the PSNI had appealed to community leaders to put a stop to the disorder that has taken place throughout much of the last week.
On Monday afternoon, a group of masked loyalists marched through the streets in towns across the region, including Portadown, Ballymena and Markethill.
