Video: Republican anti-internment parade passes off peacefully in Belfast


A heavy security presence ensured four protests in Belfast on Sunday passed off peacefully - with only a fraction of the expected crowds at some of them.

They included republicans opposed to internment, loyalists opposed to the republicans, a far-right group piggy-backing on the loyalist protest, and a left-wing group opposed to that.

Between 200 and 300 republican demonstrators marking the anniversary of internment without trial were blocked from entering the city centre after a Parades Commission ruling intended to protect law and order.
