The police have released images of people they want to speak to in relation to serious public order in the Rosapenna Street area of Belfast last summer.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Reid said; “Today we are releasing 14 images of individuals whom we’d like to talk to in connection with our ongoing investigations into serious public disorder which took place in the area of Rosapenna Street on Sunday 9 August last year following the Anti-Internment Parade.

“Over the course of the day, there was a small number of people in the area who were intent on causing disorder and attacking police officers.  A number of missiles and petrol bombs were thrown at police and water cannon was used to manage the disorder.  Unfortunately a number of officers sustained minor injuries."
