Stabbing victim still critical one week after attack outside Sheffield mosque
A man left fighting for life in a stabbing outside a Sheffield mosque remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition today.
The 35-year-old was knifed close to the Markazi Jamia Masjid mosque on Industry Road, Darnall, at around 3.30pm on Saturday, January 30.
