As talks continue to try to resolve the impasse in Northern Ireland's divided communities the BBC's Chris Buckler reports from a Belfast roundabout which has become a focal point of conflict.

Dr Richard Haass is holding talks with political and community leaders from the loyalist and nationalist areas aimed at resolving disputes over parades, flags and settling unresolved bitterness from Northern Ireland's troubled past.
