150 protesters demonstrate outside MP's office

A crowd of up to 150 protesters assembled outside the office of Alliance MP Naomi Long tonight, in what appear to be peaceful protests.

Last night loyalists threw a petrol bomb into a police car whilst an officer sat inside, close to Ms Long's office in East Belfast.

Ms Long's office is being targeted as the Alliance Party voted with the nationalist parties to remove the flag from the front of Belfast's City Hall on all but designated days. The Alliance Party are a cross-community party; neither nationalist nor unionist.
