A journalist who wrote about last week's £3m Brink's Allied raid in Dublin was shot and injured last night by a man who called at her home in the city. Veronica Guerin, who works for the Sunday Independent in Dublin, was shot in the right leg as she answered the door at 6.55pm.
On Sunday, extensive background reports by Ms Guerin about last Tuesday's raid appeared in the Sunday Independent newspaper. It was the second time she has been shot at. Last October, shots were fired near her home after she wrote articles about organised crime.
