A teenager is in a critical condition following a stabbing incident in the vicinity of a contentious bonfire which was lit last night in the New Lodge area of Belfast.

The 18-year-old boy was stabbed in the back.

Two men, aged 21 and 28, were arrested this morning off the Oldpark Road.

The bonfire was built to mark the anniversary of the introduction of internment in 1971.
