A double-decker bus was completely engulfed in flames after being firebombed by rioters near Northern Ireland’s “peace wall” — in the fourth night of violence that has injured at least 55 cops, authorities said.
Wild video shared by The Sun shows the red bus slowly crawling through a Belfast street late Wednesday as a crowd of black-clad young men lobbed gasoline bombs at it.
It was soon completely engulfed in flames, with huge plumes of black smoke rising into the air — later leaving just charred remains left on the ground.
“This is not protest. This is vandalism and attempted murder,” First Minister Arlene Foster tweeted along with footage of the bus attack, calling it “an embarrassment to Northern Ireland.”
The violence is being blamed on escalating frustration over new post-Brexit trade barriers between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom.
