Riots in Northern Ireland BELFAST (UPI) - The body of a man shot in the head was found today lying in a street on sthe edge of a Roman-Catholic area of Belfast, the 841st victim of the political and religious violence in Northern Ireland since mid-1969. Police did not Immediately identify the man. His death followed rioting that began Wednesday night in Belfast and spread to Londonderry early today, with mobs and gunmen battling troops. An army spokesman said at least four persons were wounded and that Soviet-made rockets were fired at army posts. Belfast Riots The spokesman said the Belfast rioting, in which hundreds of youths roamed the streets hijacking buses, setting up blockades and stoning troops, was the worst this year. He said the situation. in Belfast was quiet early today. As rioting spread to Londonderry, the army blamed it on the Irish Republican Army (IRA). v In the Londonderry fighting, officials said, a man was shot in the neck and a woman in the legs. They said two small children were wounded by shrapnel from an exploding rocket fired at an army post. Gangs Seize Buses In, Belfast, an army spokesman said roaming gangs of youths seized eight buses, but he said troops foiled at least two attempts to hijack Londonderry buses. Fire gutted one bus in Belfast and seven passengers were injured two of them seriously, when four armed youths poured gasoline into the bus and refused to let passengers off until the vehicle was ablaze. The city bus company said late Wednesday that it was halting service "until further notice." In Londonderry, officials said, gunmen fired at least 25 shots and two rockets at troops in an army camp. There were| no reports of casualties. Day of Violence The rioting came at the end! of a day of violence at Maze] Prison, where rumors circulated that troops had killed rioting j prisoners. The troops were called to Maze to break up a riot that began when prisoners—suspected IRA members and Protestant extremists—objected to jail searches of visitors. Eight soldiers, four prison employes and 15 prisoners were injured in the rioting, prison officials said. Earlier Wednesday, two bomb attacks—the first since assembly elections five days ago—wrecked buildings, but caused no casualties. Telephoned warnings to the two targets, shops and offices in downtown Belfast and a gasoline station in the city's northern outskirts, gave police time to clear both areas.
