BELFAST - Police fired plastic bullets and water cannon at Catholic youths in Belfast on Tuesday after rioting erupted when a Protestant parade passed their estate.

The violence came on the culmination of a season of parades by pro-British Protestants to mark a 17th-century military victory, a tradition many Catholics say is provocative.

Dozens of young people threw bottles, slates and petrol bombs in the mainly Catholic Ardoyne area after police moved in to prevent them confronting the passing Orange Order parade.
