On 18 November a former member of the UDR was shot dead on his way home to New Buildings. In other incidents a part-time UDR member was very seriously injured in a shooting attack, and a young wife from county Donegal was also very seriously injured after a booby trap device exploded at the gates of the city. In police divisions N and O, which include the hon. Member's constituency, 15 persons have been charged since 1 November with serious terrorist type offences.
