IRA leader wounded by gunmen in Belfast

Gerry Adams, leader of the political wing of the outlawed Irish Republican Army, was shot and wounded Wednesday by gunmen in a car in the center of Belfast.

Police sources said they thought the outlawed hard-line Protestant Ulster Volunteer Force was behind the shooting.

Hospital sources said Mr. Adams was not seriously wounded. Four Sinn Fein members, who were in a car with Adams at the time of the attack, were also hit, but their condition was stable, the sources added.
