BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) — Northern Ireland police say a suspected Irish Republican Army member has been arrested on suspicion of firing a burst of automatic fire at officers in Belfast last month.

The 57-year-old man was arrested Monday and could be questioned for up to a week before being charged or released.

About 10 bullets were fired July 13 at police in Ardoyne, an IRA power base in north Belfast, during riots in the Irish Catholic area. No officers were hit.

In recent years Ardoyne has suffered rioting after July 12 parades by the Orange Order, the major British Protestant brotherhood in Northern Ireland. Many Catholics consider Orange parades provocative.

While most IRA members renounced violence in 2005, several small IRA factions still mount occasional bomb and gun attacks in the British territory.
