Two more men have been charged over the rioting in north Belfast's Ardoyne area over the twelfth of July period.

A 25-year-old man was charged with riotous assembly and throwing petrol bombs and a 44-year-old man with riotous assembly.

Both men are expected to appear in court later on Tuesday.

On Monday night a 20-year-old man was charged in connection with a bomb attack during rioting in west Belfast last month.

The charges include aggravated criminal damage, possession of explosives in suspicious circumstances and having an offensive weapon.

They are believed to relate to a nail bomb thrown at a house during trouble in the Broadway area early on 13 July.
