There have been further clashes between police and Loyalist protesters in east Belfast, with reports of shots being fired and a 38-year-old man being arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
The violence, which flared for the third night in a row, is linked to last month's decision by councillors to limit the number of days the union flag is flown over Belfast City Hall.

Belfast is in NIreland and, as such, is British territory. The leftist numbnuts have deemed flying the correct flag as a provocation.
I understand and support the anger, even if I dont support the violence. The justifiably angry rioters have played into the hands of those who would call them bigoted bullyboy Unionist thugs. Peaceful demonstrations would have worked.
I don’t support the violence either, but I can understand the frustration of those who have to deal with Orwellian leftists and their charades.
