Brazil presidential hopeful ´fine´ after knife attack
RIO DE JANEIRO, (DNA) – Right-wing presidential front-runner Jair Bolsonaro was attacked with a knife while campaigning in Brazil on Thursday — but escaped with just minor injuries, his son said.
Images shared on social media and television showed Bolsonaro being carried on the shoulders of a throng of supporters before a man lunges at his stomach.
“Thank God it was barely superficial and he´s fine,” Flavio Bolsonaro wrote on Twitter about the incident in Minas Gerais state, in the country´s southeast.
The apparent attacker is then grabbed by several Bolsonaro supporters before the video cuts out.
Other images show the presidential candidate being carried to safety.
Bolsonaro, a 63-year-old former army captain, was taken to a nearby hospital in the town of Juiz de Fora, police said.
