The British flag was hoisted over Belfast's City Hall for the first time since its removal a month ago sparked riots in Northern Ireland. On a sixth consecutive night of violence in the British province, protesters pelted police in the capital Belfast with petrol bombs, fireworks, bottles and stones.
