RUC bans Orange walk route.

Police yesterday banned an Orange Order parade going through a Catholic flashpoint in Belfast.

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.
