NORWAY--Two Iranians who converted from Islam to Christianity were stabbed by masked men in Haugesund last week. The attacker shouted 'Kuffar' (Arabic for non-believer) during the attack.
The attack happened Tuesday evening, when both Christian Iranians were out walking in Haugesund. They were suddenly attacked by three masked men armed with knives, who shouted 'kuffar' while they stabbed the two.
A nurse passing by gave first aid and then an ambulance brought them to a hospital, reports Haugesunds Avis.
According to the police, one of the victims was stabbed twice in the back and the other was stabbed in his side. No perpetrators have been caught.
The two victims want to remain anonymous and have not spoken of the assault. They've lived in Norway for many years. One of them converted in Norway, the other did so in Iran and managed to flee to Norway after he was abused and imprisoned for his faith.
They're both active in a local evangelical church. (Read more.)
