Northern Ireland police are holding two men in connection with the violent deaths of three young Catholic brothers.
The arrests came as Protestant Orangemen celebrated their biggest holiday, marching through a Catholic neighborhood.
The parade went ahead in spite of calls from all sides to halt the controversial marches.

The major anticipated flashpoint was on the Lower Ormeau road - a Catholic neighbourhood of Belfast. A bomb scare delayed the start of today's scheduled Protestant march to which local residents are strongly
opposed. Today they carried black flags in memory of the three children killed over the weekend in what police are saying was a firebomb attack by Protestant extremists.
In the past there have been clashes along this stretch of road but today the word went out that the protest was to be peaceful. And it was.
The Protestant bands - commemorating a victory over Catholics more than three hundred years ago - marched by quietly. There was a pall cast over all of the events today as a result of the deaths of the three boys.
Richard, Mark and Jason Quinn had the misfortune of being children of a Catholic mother living in a Protestant area. Those trying to rescue them heard their screams as they died. The deaths outraged even hard-line Protestant leaders.
IAN PAISLEY, DEMOCRATIC UNIONIST PARTY: IT WOULDN'T MATTER WHAT THEIR RELIGION WAS THE FACT IS THIS IS A DIABOLICAL AND EVIL DEED AND THE PERPETRATORS OF THIS DEED MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE.
TONY BLAIR, BRITISH PRIME MINISTER: I also feel a complete and total determination that we are not going to let the murderers, those that have engaged in this act of barbarity , wreck the future for the people of
northern Ireland... they want a future of peace and they can have and should have it.
The Protestants - members of the so-called Orange Order - have been asked by all sides here to give up their protest and leave. But they say they won't until they're allowed to finish their march through a
Catholic area here. The stand off may not be as violent as it's been over the past week - but it's still ugly.))

Two Marines will still be court-martialed for their roles in the Italian cable car tragedy -- but they won't face charges in Italy.

A Roanoke firefighter is expected to make a full recovery after he was injured while fighting a house fire on Campbell Avenue Saturday.
The T-11 and T-12 vertebrae in Robert Earley's lower back were crushed when the porch of the house fell on top of him.
A local fire chief says it's the worst injury ever suffered by a Roanoke firefighter.

A small town in West Virginia is seeing more than its fair share of drug problems.
And now those problems are reaching into Botetourt County.
Two men were arrested on drug charges Saturday in Botetourt.
Police suspect Victor Duane Helm and Carlos Renaldo Ivy bought the crack cocaine and marijuana found in their possession with the intent to sell it to their neighbors in Keystone, West Virginia.
Authorities say the small town of about 650-residents has an ongoing problem with drugs, particularly crack cocaine, being brought in from larger cities like Pittsburgh and New York.
Both men are charged with possession with intent to distribute.
It was the French who invented the World Cup competition some 70

Last night, they threw the street party to end all street parties. The entire country went on a binge of joy and Gallic pride. Paris was blue-white-red, euphoric, noisy, and jammed with ecstatic French who
could hardly believe their team had done it.
When the French pull out all the stops, it's a sight to behold. By some estimates, a million people poured into the Champs-Elysees to celebrate what they felt was an historic national victory.
It was, in fact, the biggest celebration since the liberation of Paris in 1944 -- one of those great national events that come only once or twice in a lifetime, and produce an explosion of national joy.
Last night's celebrations were marred by an accident when a car plowed into the crowd on the Champs-Elysees and injured about 60 persons, 7 of them seriously. But on the whole, it was amazing that such a wild party
could be held with so little damage. One thing that marked this victory was the good will on all sides. The Brazilians were heart broken, but there were no hard feelings. They were already looking forward to the
next World Cup in four years time.
It has been a long time since the French have had anything to crow about. The national mood in the past few years has been morose and pessimistic as a result of high unemployment and a stagnant economy. But
for the moment anyway, all that has been forgotten.))
A student sex survey that sparked controversy 4 years ago will be returning to Virginia's classrooms.
The original survey inquired about the number of sexual partners of children as young as 12 years old.
Education officials say they do plan to tone those questions down -- but they insist the survey is needed to gauge the behavior of teenagers.
The General Assembly expects a report on the results in November of 1999.
