LONDONDERRY, Northern Ireland, March 22 (UPI) -- Two men were shot in the legs in a paramilitary-style attack in the Ballymagroarty section of Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

The attack in the country's second largest city occurred Thursday evening and the unidentified victims, ages 25 and 26, are believed to be brothers, The Belfast Telegraph, reported Friday.

They were hospitalized and their condition was reported to be life-threatening.
