    Bus burnt and car hijacked in Newtownabbey disorder

    It is understood there were a number of police raids in the area earlier on Monday.
    Ken Wilkinson, a representative of the UVF-linked Progressive Unionist Party, said he understood the trouble was linked to three searches in the area over the past two days by officers from the Historical Enquiries Team.

    Seems like the UVF is scared about what the HET might find.

    That BBC link covers all that happened, police did raids in the afternoon and in the early evening some rioting or at lest car and bus burning happened. O Neil's Road area.

    Teenagers and immature adults jumping at the chance of a bit of rioting, hardly typical Unionism. It was not until the searchs were finished that they started to play silly buggers, facebook rent a mob.
