Sir Salman Rushdie stabbed 12 times including in face and neck, district attorney's office says

Sir Salman Rushdie was stabbed about 12 times – including in the face and neck, a US district attorney’s office has said.

The wound in the facial area caused a puncture to Sir Salman’s eye, the Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office said.

A wound to the abdomen caused a puncture of the author’s liver.

There were also multiple further stab wounds to the abdomen and chest area.

Earlier, the suspect in the attack pleaded not guilty to attempted murder.

A lawyer entered a plea on behalf of Hadi Matar, 24, during an arraignment hearing.

Matar appeared in court wearing a black and white jumpsuit and a white face mask, his hands cuffed in front of him.
