Parade row sparks clashes in Northern Ireland

Protestants say parade held by local area Catholics is a provocation.

    Police in Northern Ireland have battled protesters for a third night running.

    Protestants say a parade held by local area Catholics is a provocation, especially because, they say many of their own planned parades have been cancelled or diverted.

    The tension comes in a still deeply divided area of Belfast, where Catholic nationalists and Protestant unionists live in close proximity to one another.

    Al Jazeera's Simon McGregor Wood reports from North Belfast.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
