N Ireland sees 3rd night of unrest amid post-Brexit tensions
LONDON (AP) — Police and politicians in Northern Ireland appealed for calm on Monday after a third night of violence that saw Protestant youths start fires and pelt officers with bricks and gasoline bombs. The flareups come amid rising tensions over post-Brexit trade rules for Northern Ireland and worsening relations between the parties in the Protestant-Catholic power-sharing Belfast government. The Police Service of Northern Ireland said officers were attacked in Londonderry on Sunday night, and there was also unrest in two pro-British unionist areas near Belfast. Police said most of those involved were teenagers.

Belfast's estate, May 4 (Reuters ) - The main party of Northern Ireland, the DUP (Democratic Unionist Party), should be able to communicate the name of its new leader after a vote organized weekend, said Tuesday his President.
The winner of this internal election will be responsible for taking the succession of Arlene Foster at the head of the semi-autonomous government of the British province or to appoint the new leader.
Arlene Foster announced last week that she would leave her duties at the end of May at the head of the Dup then, at the end of June, her duties as a premier, ceding at the pressure of members of her unhappy party of her management of Brexit in particular.
