LONDONDERRY, Northern Ireland: Two bombs went off in northern Ireland tonight after weekend rioting in the British province in which a man died and five policemen were injured. The two explosions came within 20 minutes of each other in a protestant area of Londonderry, the province’s second city.

Police said the first blast hit the back of a railway station, and the second, about 100 yards (meters) away, slightly injured two children and one adult.

The explosions followed some of the worst riots in Northern Ireland this summer.

A man died and five policemen were injured when Catholic Nationalists, opposed to British rule in Norther Ireland, went on the rampage in Belfast last night to mark the 16th anniversary of Britain introducing internment without trial.

The rioting following yesterday’s annual apprentice boys parade through Londonderry, when protestants commemorated a 300yearold victory over Catholic King Jame 11. The parade passed off without major incidents.
