34 people arrested following riots in Dublin after stabbings


Thirty-four people have been arrested following “huge destruction by a riotous mob” in Dublin, Garda Commissioner Drew Harris said.

Three young children were injured in a stabbing outside a primary school which sparked violent protests and clashes with police.

A five-year-old schoolgirl, and a woman in her 30s, described as a “member of staff caring for her”, are being treated in hospital for serious injuries.

Officers with riot shields held back crowds in the city centre where a police car was set on fire amid anger over the stabbings in Parnell Square East.
