Union flag protest: 1000 people take part in peace rally


Up to 1,000 people have taken part in a peace vigil outside Belfast City Hall in response to the violence of the past two weeks.

It was the second peace gathering in two days.

On Saturday, several hundred people linked arms to encircle Belfast City Hall for a five-minute prayer vigil.

On Sunday, a bigger crowd clapped, cheered, blew horns and banged drums for five minutes.

They said they were making "a big noise" to call for an end to violence.
