Two men were injured in separate paramilitary-style beatings in Northern Ireland last night.

A 20-year-old was treated for leg and other injuries after being attacked at home in Coleraine, Co Londonderry, by masked men with clubs. They then told him to get out of the area, said the RUC. Earlier, an 18-year-old was beaten with hammers by two men outside his home in Antrim. He was treated for head injuries.
