WATCH: Burning Car Pushed Into Crowd In Northern Ireland Riots

Police in Northern Ireland have released this video footage of a burning car being pushed towards a crowd in Belfast.

The car was set on fire by rioting members of the nationalist community and pushed through a crowd towards police, reports The Guardian. The police released the video to highlight the danger the car posed – if the gas tank had exploded many people may have died.

Earlier this month Northern Ireland was hit with some of its worst violence in 10 years.
