Man shot dead

in Ulster

A man in his early forties was shot dead in a gun attack at a bar in a loyalist area of Northern Ireland last night.

The man was hit three times in the head and body and died at the scene on an estate in Ballymena, Co Antrim. Police did not believe the motive for the attack, launched by two men, was sectarian. The Royal Ulster Constabulary said the victim had no connection with the security forces.
