A 15-year-old boy has been shot in both legs by a masked gang of three men in Northern Ireland.
Matthew Campbell had to undergo emergency surgery at Belfast's Royal Victoria Hospital after the early morning attack, which is being blamed on loyalist paramilitaries.
The gang, one of whom was wielding a baseball bat, forced their way into a house in a staunchly loyalist area of Coleraine, Co Londonderry, and shot the boy - one of the paramilitaries' youngest victims.
The attack has raised questions about the legitimacy of loyalist ceasefires.
Social Democratic and Labour Party Assembly member John Dallat said: "I would ask the chief constable, in light of this attack to revise his position in respect of loyalist paramilitaries who are clearly flouting the terms of their ceasefire.
"Gangs of this nature must not be allowed to abuse members of this community and deliver their perverse concept of 'justice'."

Police have issued a fresh appeal in the hunt for the killers of murdered prison officer David Black, on the anniversary of his death.
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said today that men were seen running from the dark blue Toyota Camry used to shoot the 52-year-old dead in in Co Armagh, Northern Ireland, as he drove to work at Maghaberry jail.
PSNI Detective Chief Inspector Richard Harkness said: "A number of men were seen running away from the Toyota Camry car."
He added: "I would also appeal to people in Cookstown to think about what they saw in the days and weeks before David's murder last year. Did you see any unusual activity around David's home or the places he frequented?
"I would remind people there is a reward of up to £10,000 available for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible."

Northern Ireland is the happiest country in the UK overall, according to new figures from the Office for National Statistics.
The study revealed more people in Northern Ireland rated their life satisfaction and happiness as high than in England, Scotland or Wales.
Wales had proportionately more people than any other country in the UK rating their life satisfaction as low.
The 2012/2013 statistics are the first from ONS to explore how personal well-being varies across the countries, regions and more local areas of the UK.
Participants were asked how satisfied they were with their life, to what extent they felt the things they did in their life were worthwhile, and how happy or anxious they felt.
Richard Kemp, a former commander of British forces in Afghanistan who was a colonel in the Royal Anglian Regiment whose servicemen were involved on the day of the Bloody Sunday shootings said it was “disgraceful” that the troops faced arrest and potential prosecution.
According to the Sunday Times (£), Mr Kemp said:
Although I utterly condemn the unjustified killing that took place on Bloody Sunday, it is despicable that 41 years later law officers are planning to prosecute the soldiers involved for murder.
This ridiculous, politically motivated prosecution is not in the public interest and should not be permitted.
A source close to the police who has seen government files on the investigation surrounding the Bloody Sunday shootings told the Sunday Times (£) that interviews under police caution were "expected imminently". The spokesman added:
This is the beginning. It is the first time the soldiers will have been interviewed formally by police as part of a murder investigation. It is possible that some of the soldiers will be prosecuted.
For the investigation to be as comprehensive and effective as possible, police will be asking for public support in the form of witnesses who gave evidence to the Saville inquiry now making statements to detectives. This is because police are precluded from using Saville testimony in a criminal investigation.
Up to 20 retired British soldiers face arrest for murder over murder, attempted murder of criminal injury over the Bloody Sunday shootings, according to the Sunday Times (£).
The move comes three years after the £200m, 12-year inquiry by Lord Saville into the shootings produced its report.
Saville found that all those shot by paratroopers during a Catholic civil rights march in the nationalist Bogside area of Londonderry in January 1972 were unarmed, and that the killings were both “unjustified and unjustifiable”.
The judge concluded the army had lost control of the situation, that the soldiers had fired first and some of them had then lied to cover up their culpability.
