POLICE have renewed an appeal for information after a crossbow was fired at the army during rioting in Belfast on Sunday evening.

The crossbow was fired during an attack on police and army shortly before midnight in the Lecale/Glenmachan Street area of Broadway.

The army fired two live rounds in response.

A man was later taken to hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm.

He has since been released and is now helping police with their enquiries.

Detectives at Musgrave Street have asked for anyone with information about the incident to contact them on 02890 650 222.
