Monk in­jured in stab­bing

Los Angeles Times - - OBITUARIES -

Author­i­ties said a 66year-old Bud­dhist monk was crit­i­cally in­jured when a fel­low monk stabbed him in a San Fran­cisco Bay-area home.

Oak­land po­lice said they are search­ing for a sus­pect and that no ar­rests have been made since the at­tack Tues­day.

The vic­tim is a monk at the Branch of In­ter­na­tional Com­mu­nity of Kh­mer Bud­dhist Monks Cen­ter, near where the as­sault hap- pened.

San Hin, who said he drove the in­jured monk to the hos­pi­tal, said he is un­sure what sparked the dis­pute. He said the sus­pect, who he and the po­lice de­clined to iden­tify, re­cently joined the monastery.

Po­lice said they have not con­firmed a mo­tive.
