American media reported that British writer Salman Rushdie was attacked on Friday in a hall where he was giving a lecture in New York.

The attacker's identity is not yet known, nor is Rushdie's condition. 

In the 1980s, Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling for Rushdie's death after the publication of one of Rushdie's novels, which was met with global criticism.
