NI First Minister Peter Robinson condemns Belfast riots

Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson has condemned those involved in violence and breaking the law in north Belfast.

Police faced a third night of riots in the city on Tuesday, which left three officers injured.

Mr Robinson, who has faced criticism for failing to make a public statement over the clashes, said he was working behind the scenes to stop the rioting.

Talks have continued to try to diffuse tension in the area, including on the subject of parades.
