Disorder broke out in the Denmark Street area, close to Carlisle Circus, at the beginning of September.

It came after a republican parade through the streets, as tensions were already running high following a Royal Black Institution parade past the nearby St Patrick's Church in Donegall Street.

On Thursday, police revealed CCTV pictures of men they wanted to speak to in connection with the disorder.

A 52-year-old man has been charged with riotous assembly and possession of an offensive weapon. He is due to appear in court in Belfast on Saturday.

Two men, aged 17 and 23 who are also facing a charge of riotous assembly, will appear at Belfast Magistrates' Court in January.
