A man in Sicily in Italy asked a friend to shoot him in the groin in the hope of making his ex-girlfriend feel sorry for him, police said.

Police in the central Sicilian city of Piazza Armerina said they became suspicious when the 27-year-old went to hospital with wounds from a hunting rifle's pellets in the groin area.
