Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Theresa Villiers is meeting business leaders in Belfast to find out how the city is coping after another weekend of trouble over the union flag.
Ms Villiers is meeting Bob Conbrey, the owner of Home restaurant near Belfast City Hall, who says his business has been affected by the flag protests turning violent.
Twenty-nine police officers were injured during sectarian riots between republicans and loyalists in east Belfast today.
The union flag will be raised at dawn over Belfast City Hall for the first time since the dispute began last month.
Police were attacked for a third night, with frontline officers reportedly coming under gunfire as new loyalist trouble erupted in Belfast.
