Violence flares up again between loyalists and republicans
Belfast has been shaken by violence since Sunday, as tensions between loyalists and republicans in Northern Ireland come to a head. 300 republicans took part in a traditional parade on Sunday, in an area where loyalists had been barred from doing the same. Such marches are a large part of Northern Irish culture and represent the divisions and bloody history between communities: republicans, who want Northern Ireland to be governed by Dublin, and loyalists, who support the British crown.
