Events were held across Northern Ireland on Sunday as the province paid tribute to those who fought and died while serving in the armed forces.

In Belfast First Minister Peter Robinson and Secretary of State Theresa Villiers were joined by Irish Foreign Minister Charles Flanagan at the Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the City Hall.

Wreaths were laid at the foot of the Cenotaph in the grounds of the City Hall by the First Minister and the Secretary of State followed by representatives of the armed forces, veterans, PSNI Chief Constable George Hamilton and Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast Guy Spence.

Irish prime minister Enda Kenny laid a wreath at the war memorial in Enniskillen, 28 years to the day after an IRA bomb attack killed 12 and injured 63 attending the Remembrance Sunday ceremony.
