Police have come under attack from loyalists in Belfast city centre ahead of a republican parade.
There were clashes in the Royal Avenue area, with officers pelted with bricks and other missiles, as hundreds of loyalist demonstrators gathered to protest at the rally to mark the introduction of internment in Northern Ireland during the Troubles.
Protesters have attempted to block part of the route the Anti-Internment League parade is due to take later this evening.
Police have advised the public to avoid the area.
