Author Sir Salman Rushdie, whose writing has previously led to death threats, has been attacked on stage at an event in New York state.
He was about to give a lecture when a man stormed the stage at the Chautauqua Institution and began punching or stabbing Sir Salman as he was being introduced, according to an AP reporter who was there.
The author was taken or fell to the floor, and the man was restrained.
