Man 'stabbed' at halting site

A man was allegedly stabbed in the neck following a row at a Dublin halting site.

Gardai are investigating the incident, which took place in Kimmage Manor in Terenure – which is home to several settled Traveller families.

Gardai believe two men, who are members of the same family, were involved in a row yesterday morning.

One suffered neck injuries and may have been stabbed with a sharp object. He was brought to St James's Hospital but is understood to have been discharged last night.

A source said the incident took place following a "fracas" involving two members of the same family. No arrests were made.

Bosnia's 1992-95 war left the country filled with buried land mines.

Since the conflict ended, they have killed more than 600 people.
