Republican bailed on riot charges
Bobby Storey
The court imposed a curfew on Bobby Storey
A leading Belfast republican, who was alleged in court to be the instigator of a riot, has been granted bail.

The High Court heard Bobby Storey, from South Link in Andersonstown, verbally encouraged a crowd of 40 rioters.

The court also heard he had allegedly prevented arrests being made during the disturbance on 4 September.

His solicitor told the court he had been summoned to quell the riot. He denies charges of riotous assembly, and assaulting and obstructing an officer.

The court also imposed a curfew on him from eight o'clock in the evening until seven o'clock in the morning.
