Northern Irish protesters hold the union flag as they block the Donegall road in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on December 11, 2012 amid renewed tensions after Belfast city councillors voted not to fly the British flag all year around. Around 3,500 people were killed in the three decades of sectarian bloodshed between Northern Irish Protestants favouring continued union with Britain, and Catholics seeking a unified Ireland.
