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.
