(( Northern Ireland burns by night.
Young catholics take out their anger on the the largely protestant police force and the ruc, as they are known, responds with force.
This has become a nightly ritual.
Inevitably the violence is escalating.
And early this morning, the bomb came back to Northern Ireland.
A car bomb blitzed a hotel in enniskillen where a wedding party was in progress.
There was a warning, but forty people were still injured, and the hotel itself lies in ruins.
A dublin-based irish-nationalist splinter group has has claimed responsability.
FENTON: But the entire Catholic community now seems united in their anger against the polce, the protestant militants and the British government.
And the events of the past week have swelled the ranks of supporters of the IRA.
People who never marched before turned out today to protest the death of a catholic man who was killed in this week's riots.
As families marched down the Falls Road in silent protest, the only sound was the whirr of a british army surveillance helicopter.
Catholics are outraged by what they see as their continued treatment as second class citizens.
GERRY ADAMS/SINN FEIN LEADER: WE ARE NOT, LET US NOTE THIS, WE ARE NOT PREPARED TO HAVE OUR RIGHTS WALKED OVER BY THE RUC, BY JOHN MAJOR, OR ANYONE ELSE. THE DANGER NOW IS THAT THE PROTEST MILITANTS WILL BREAK THEIR TWO YEAR LONG CEASEFIRE.
DAVID ERVINE/PROTESTANT MILITANT: I THINK WE'RE AT THAT POINT NOW WHERE WE'RE ON OUT WAY TO HELL AND BACK.
I DONT KNOW HOW IT CAN BE RETRIEVED AND I WOULD CERTAINLY SUGGEST THAT THE VIOLENT REPUBLICAN MOVEMENT HAD THE CHOICE TO LIGHT THE TOUCHPAPER OR NOT AND THEY CHOSE TO LIGHT THE TOUCHPAPER.
The sad reality is that this is not only the rebirth of what used to be called "the troubles," it has brought the troubles to yet another generation in northern ireland.
