A Press Association photographer, Niall Carson, was shot in the leg while covering a riot in Belfast last night.
Carson, who was taken to the city’s Royal Victoria hospital, was said to be in a stable condition. Shots were fired during clashes in the sectarian interface of Short Strand, east Belfast. A Sky News reporter said the media withdrew after coming under “indiscriminate” attack.
