BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND- It seems the European Union flag can be mistaken for an emblem of terror in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Police were called to golfer Rory McIlroy's hometown after locals reported seeing a house flying a flag of what was described as an Islamic terrorist group.

The homeowner explained it was the flag of the European Union he was flying to celebrate Europe's Rider Cup victory of the U.S. One city official said "You couldn't make it up" in reaction to the complaint.
