Six people are being treated for gunshot wounds after violence broke out at a meeting of the main opposition party in the Dominican Republic.

Dominican Revolutionary Party (PRD) leader Miguel Vargas blamed the incident on former president Hipolito Mejia, who denied any responsibility.

Mr Mejia was expelled from the PRD earlier this month for insubordination.
