Mayor crit­i­cal af­ter stab­bing on stage

Penticton Herald - - WORLD -

WAR­SAW, Poland — A man with a knife rushed on stage dur­ing a char­ity event and stabbed a Pol­ish mayor in the ab­domen Sun­day, leav­ing the politi­cian in grave con­di­tion.

Gdansk Mayor Pawel Adamow­icz grabbed his belly and col­lapsed.

Pol­ish Pres­i­dent An­drzej Duda said he was in­formed that “doc­tors suc­ceeded in re­an­i­mat­ing the heart of the se­ri­ously in­jured Mayor Pawel Adamow­icz and there is hope, but his con­di­tion is very dif­fi­cult.”

Pol­ish broad­caster TVN said the as­sailant shouted from the stage that he had been wrongly im­pris­oned un­der a pre­vi­ous na­tional gov­ern­ment led by Civic Plat­form, a party to which the mayor for­merly be­longed. The sus­pected at­tacker was ar­rested.
