RUC bans Orange walk route.
The RUC decision to re-route Sunday's march away from the lower Ormeau Road was taken because of fears of violence.
Local nationalists had objected to it.
RUC Assistant Chief Constable Bill Stewart said: "In view of the likelihood of serious public disorder there was no other decision we could have taken."
Several officers and civilians were hurt in clashes when riot police blocked a loyalist Apprentice Boys parade on Easter Monday.
