Belfast clashes follow union flag protest


Police have been attacked in east Belfast for the third day running.

About 100 loyalists attacked officers with bricks, bottles and smoke bombs. The police used water cannon in response.

Earlier on Saturday, up to 1,000 loyalists protested outside Belfast City Hall over the decision to fly the union flag only on designated days.
