Disorder has flared in Derry for a sixth successive night.

Youths in the city's Bogside threw petrol bombs at police and random passing vehicles on Thursday night and also lit a fire on a main flyover.

The disturbances in the republican neighbourhood came after the city hosted Twelfth of July Orange Order commemorations.

Youths wearing hoods and masks, some of them of a very young age, were among a crowd of around 200 that gathered as trouble erupted in the Bogside on Thursday evening.

At one point a hooded rioter hurled a petrol bomb at the windscreen of a passing van from point blank range.

The majority of the petrol bombs were aimed at police stationed on the historic city walls overlooking the Bogside and on Fahan Street leading to the city centre.

Police Land Rovers were engulfed in flames on a number of occasions.

The PSNI expressed "regret" at the latest outbreak of disorder.

"It is clear that there are young children involved," said a police statement. "Parents - make sure your children aren't involved."

It was the sixth night of violence in the area.

This week has already witnessed two dissident republican murder bids against police officers in Derry.

On Tuesday night a volley of machine gun fire was directed at officers and on Wednesday night two pipe bombs were thrown at police. No one was injured.

As well as police, rioters have also targeted homes in the nearby unionist Fountain estate.

Wednesday night also brought violent scenes in Belfast, with loyalists blamed for the disorder.

Masked men hijacked and torched vehicles amid anger about moves to reduce the size of two loyalist Eleventh Night bonfires.

Thousands of Orange Order members took part in Twelfth of July parades across Northern Ireland on Thursday to mark the 1690 victory of Protestant King William of Orange over Catholic King James II at the Battle of the Boyne.

It was the biggest date in the Protestant loyal order parading calendar.

Hatred runs long and deep. Consider the majority of these youngsters parents were only youngsters themselves during the years of the Troubles only entering adulthood by the time of the Good Friday Agreement; but sadly their hate is passed on to the next generation, fury deep and unabated
