BELFAST, Northern Ireland — Sinn Féin and the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) blamed republican dissidents for orchestrating trouble in north and west Belfast in which three police officers were shot and 24 others also injured.

In west Belfast, two armed and masked men also hijacked a bus this afternoon and forced its driver to drive to the local PSNI station in Woodburn.

The men said they had left an explosive device on the bus, which the driver was forced to abandon at the station. The area around the station was sealed off while the army dealt with the device.
