A man was shot dead and another seriously wounded in gun attacks in and around Belfast this afternoon.

The murdered man was shot on the northern outskirts of Belfast and the second a few minutes later in the Old Park Road in north Belfast.

The shootings came after three loyalist paramiliitary groups took the highly unusual step of issuing a joint statement denying that the murder of a taxi driver on Tuesday was connected with the bitter feud between the groups.
