Belfast flag protest violence - 34 arrests


Twenty six people - including three 13-year-old boys - have been charged with public order offences in connection with trouble over the weekend. In total, 34 arrests were made.

The violence followed loyalist protests over Belfast City Council's move to fly the union flag on designated days only.

Up to 28 police officers have been injured in rioting.
