First Minister Peter Robinson has said there was "no excuse" for anyone carrying out attempted murder on police officers.
The DUP leader's comments follow a fourth night of violence in Belfast, which, since Friday, has injured 71 police officers.
Mr Robinson was speaking to a special debate at the Northern Ireland Assembly to discuss the commission's decision to restrict an Orange parade in Belfast.
