>20 seconds of horror: How Salman Rushdie stabbing bloodbath unfolded in front of hundreds of people who gasped as masked knifeman leapt on stage and knifed author 'up to 15 times' - as it emerges he is on ventilator and may lose an eye
Salman Rushdie, 75, has been stabbed up to 15 times, including once in the neck while on stage in America.
He has been under Islamist death threats for over 30 years since Fatwa issued in 1989 over The Satanic Verses. The author is on a ventilator and 'likely to lose an eye' after being airlifted to hospital following the attack. A man who came out of the audience 'punched and stabbed' him at a literary fair in Chautauqua, New York.
Suspect has been arrested and taken into custody by police, officers said but would not speculate on motive.
