Ten PSNI officers hurt in trouble after flag protest


Ten officers were injured when police were attacked by a crowd throwing petrol bombs and missiles in Belfast.

Disorder broke out at about 18:30 GMT on Thursday on Albertbridge Road after a loyalist protest against union flag restrictions at Belfast City Hall.

A car was also set on fire in nearby Templemore Avenue.

A 23-year-old man charged with rioting is due in Belfast Magistrates Court later. A youth aged 16 will appear at a juvenile court later this month.
