Rioting in Belfast Continues for Sixth Day

Controversy over flag at City Hall causing tensions to rise


The row over the flying of the Union flag at Belfast City Hall has led to a sixth successive night of clashes in Northern Ireland's capital.

Hours after the latest violence, the flag was raised there to mark the birthday of a member of the British royal family, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, the UK's future king.
