A double decker bus has been hijacked in Belfast this evening and petrol bombed on what is the 5th night of violence in Northern Ireland

It's reported the driver is OK but shaken. As can be seen by the photos the bus is fully alight. Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service were unable to attend the incident due to violence in the area.

As can be seen in pic 2 Police in armoured land rovers were being attacked by petrol bombs as they closed the road
