Missiles were hurled at police in riot gear in the Carlisle Circus, Clifton Street and Antrim Road areas of the city on Sunday, 2 September.

The unrest began after a loyalist crowd gathered to protest at a march held that day by the Henry Joy McCracken Republican Flute Band.

The teen has been charged with riotous assembly in the Denmark Street area.

He is expected to appear before Belfast Youth Court on Friday, 16 November.

Two men, 26 and 28, have been charged with riotous assembly in relation to the disorder.

The first man was also charged with possession of a class B controlled drug. That offence occurred on Tuesday.

He is expected to appear before Belfast Magistrates' Court on Monday, 19 November.

The 28-year-old is expected to appear at the same court the following day.
