The serious public disorder took place on 16 July and 9 August 2013.

Police said the incidents took place in the greater Belfast area.

Releasing the images, Detective Superintendent Sean Wright, the senior investigating officer with the PSNI's Operation Titan, explained: "For over a year, police officers have dealt with a number of episodes of serious disorder on the streets of Northern Ireland.

"We have been clear from the outset that there would be consequences for individuals who seek to engage in illegal activity and we have been carrying out a thorough investigation to identify those involved and make them amenable for their actions."

Violence erupted across Belfast and in other parts of Northern Ireland over contentious issues such as flags and marches.

Over the course of the last year, police have established special investigation units resulting in the arrest and court appearances of hundreds of people.

Anyone with information, or who can identify those pictured is asked to contact police on 9090 1755, or by emailing poetdpc@psni.pnn.police.uk.

Maybe if people weren't so foolish to allow themselves to be suckered in by certain politicians who have divisive agendas they would not riot and end up in jail, but would instead protest to demand that our political failures in stormont or city hall or were ever be held accountable for their ridiculous and wrong decisions instead of allowing the same political failures to pass the buck onto those who protest against their wrong decisions.Lets face it if politicians were to foot the bill for protests against their decisions or face jail time for abusing their position they would think twice before imposing their petty agendas/policies upon anyone especially if the decision taken was not really in the overall best interests of those who voted for them.
