The attack took place around 11 a.m. Friday on the stage of the amphitheater at the Chautauqua cultural center, when a man “rushed on the stage” and “stabbed” the writer, several times “at the neck” “to the abdomen,” according to local police. “The news is not good,” Rushdie’s agent Andrew Wylie told the New York Times on Friday night. “Salman will probably lose an eye; the nerves in his arm were severed and he was stabbed in the liver”, detailed Mr. Wylie, specifying that his client had been placed on an artificial respirator. Salman Rushdie, born in 1947 in India into a family of non-practicing Muslim intellectuals, set part of the Islamic world ablaze with the publication of the Satanic Verses, leading Iranian Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini to issue a fatwa in 1989 calling for his assassination.
