Crowds gather for peace protest


At least 1,000 people gathered outside Belfast City Hall at lunchtime on Sunday to protest against the violence.

There were no speeches, but for five minutes they clapped, cheered, whistled, and banged drums in what they called an "anti-silence".

People said they were representing "the silent majority" who were opposed to violence and trouble.
