Barry Linnane speaks with residents of Bombay Street, where homes have been burnt by Loyalist mobs.

One resident describes how they came under attack and received no protection from the police. All of the houses pictured were occupied yesterday by Roman Catholics and they are now all burnt out.

Bombay Street and Kashmir Road are at the borderline between Protestant and Catholic areas and experience frequent violence. Bombay Street is a Catholic residential area apart from a cobbler shop that was owned by a Protestant.

A woman describes how the residents had to hide from snipers and escape for cover. The street is now deserted after being destroyed by petrol bomb attacks. Six people are dead after a day of intense violence.
