Belfast flag protests - 15 arrests


Police in Northern Ireland are taking a harder line with loyalist protestors following more than two weeks of street violence and disruption, a senior officer has said.

Eleven officers were injured and 15 people, including nine children, arrested during protests on Monday.

There have been protests against restrictions on flying the union flag on Belfast City Hall, which the council voted through two weeks ago.

There were about 80 protests on Monday.
