Jan. 26, 2013 at 12:32 PM

BELFAST, Northern Ireland, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Police said a Molotov cocktail was thrown at officers in Belfast during the latest protest over the display of the British flag.

No one was reported hurt in the incident, which occurred amid a series of protests that have been going on since the Belfast City Council voted eight weeks ago to only display the Union Flag at city hall on special occasions.

A number of Belfast streets were blocked by protesters Friday night, the Belfast Telegraph said.
