Man injured in legs and abdomen in paramilitary-style attack

A man has been shot four times in a paramilitary-style attack in Londonderry.

The 33-year-old was attacked by four masked men in the Lisfannon Park area at around 9.35pm on Tuesday night.

He sustained wounds to his legs and abdomen.

His injuries are understood to be serious but not life threatening.

Sinn Fein Foyle Assembly member Karen Mullan said: "The shooting of this man is wrong and I condemn it.

"The people of Bogside do not want these actions taking place on their streets.

"It's clear those responsible have nothing to offer society and are at war with the community.

"There can be no justification for such actions and I would encourage anyone with information about this incident to bring it forward to the police."
