Two minutes' silence has been held at the Cenotaph at Belfast City Hall to mark Armistice Day.

A ceremony took place to remember the moment 101 years ago that the agreement came into force to end fighting in World War One.

Among those taking part in Monday's ceremony was Belfast Lord Mayor John Finucane.

Two minute silences were observed across Northern Ireland to mark the event.

It follows ceremonies throughout Northern Ireland to mark Remembrance Sunday, including at the Cenotaph.

On Sunday, Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar laid a green laurel wreath at the war memorial in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, on behalf of his government.

His visit coincided with the anniversary of the Enniskillen bomb, when 12 people were killed by an IRA explosion at the town's war memorial in 1987.
