Stabbing at Deaf Event

A man was stabbed at the closing ceremony of a international indoor soccer-type sporting event in Sweden yesterday. The World Deaf Futsal Championship, sponsored by the Swedish Deaf Sports Federation, had just ended. After the players from Iran were given gold medals for winning the tournament, an apparent supporter of the Iranian team was attacked in the hallway outside where the ceremony was taking place. The victim was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The event involved 16 men's teams and 11 women's teams from around the world. You can see photos of the event here.
