Police show of force for parade
There was a significant police presence in Belfast city centre on Saturday as several hundred republicans took part in the End Internment parade.
But the Anti-Internment League event through the city centre streets passed off peacefully. And while republicans and loyalists among the parade and counterprotest exchanged insults, the Police Service of Northern Ireland said there was no violence or arrests.
The Parades Commission, which previously restricted the march, allowed it to begin at Writers Square and on to City Hall, with the return leg out of town via Castle Street. Up to 40 loyalists, including Independent unionist Cllr Jolene Bunting who declined to talk to the media, held a counterprotest on Royal Avenue.
