A man charged in connection with a sectarian bar shooting in Derry was due before court today.

The 26-year-old is accused of causing grievous bodily harm and possession of a firearm or imitation firearm with intent to commit an arrestable offence.

It is understood the charges relate to an incident in Derry's Waterside on Wednesday night at the Oval Bar in Duke Street, during which a man was shot in the head.

The male victim, believed to be Protestant, was also shot twice in the hand, while a woman sitting near him was hit in the chest.

The wounded man underwent further treatment yesterday. However, his injuries were not thought to be life threatening.
