Salman Rushdie’s injuries are ‘life-changing’ but author has been able to ‘say a few words’, son says

Sir Salman Rushdie suffered “life-changing” injuries when he was stabbed, but has been “able to say a few words” and retains his “usual feisty and defiant sense of humour”, his son has said.

The 75-year-old author was airlifted to hospital and underwent hours of surgery following the attack on stage in Chautauqua, New York state, on Friday.
