Man accused of attempted murder

A YOUNG South Derry man is expected in court tomorrow charged with attempted murder arising out of Saturday’s stabbing incident in Magherafelt.

The 22-year-old also faces two charges of possessing an offensive weapon.

The charges arise out of the alleged incident at Rainey Street in which a 17-year-old youth was stabbed a number of times.

The accused will appear at Londonderry Magistrates Court on Monday.
