    The funerals of two victims of the violence take place in Belfast.

    The first funeral is that of Catholic Gerard McCauley, a 15-year-old shot in disturbances and a member of the youth wing of the IRA.

    The report shows a white coffin being carried from the McCauley family home through the streets followed by prayers in Irish at the graveside.

    The second funeral is that of a 26-year-old Protestant, Herbert Roy, who was also shot in street disturbances. The funeral procession shows his coffin draped in the Union Jack flag in the back of a hearse being driven through the streets of Belfast, followed by an orderly procession of mourners.
