SHARE Caption only: Facing hate on the way to school

A young girl holds her parents' hands as they walk her safely to Holy Cross Primary School in north Belfast today. Catholic schoolgirls returned to the school today without any trouble after a second night of sectarian violence near the school. On Thursday night and this morning, Catholic and Protestant youths hurled scores of gasoline bombs, acid bombs, rocks and homemade "blast bombs" at police and troops keeping them apart in the Ardoyne area of Belfast.
