On the outskirts of the northern Irish town of Londonderry, violent riots and deadly shots have hit a young woman. The death of the 29-year-olds in the housing development Creggan is treated as a „terrorist incident“, said the local police in the night on today via Twitter.

Murder investigations were initiated. The police had previously reported that incendiary devices had been fired in Creggan and several shots had been fired. Pictures of the scene showed burning cars and charred vehicle wrecks.

Since the beginning of the year again and again incidents

Londonderry has about 85,000 inhabitants and is located in the extreme northwest of the Northern Irish province on the border with the Republic of Ireland. Catholics, who simply call their city Derry, live there.

In the British part of the country, paramilitary groups are up to mischief. Since the beginning of the year, explosive devices in Londonderry have repeatedly exploded without injuring them. One of them detonated in January in a court in the middle of the city, after a warning had been received by the authorities shortly before. It was unclear at first whether the recent riots related to the Easter weekend, which is traditionally used for political rallies.
