    Hope he recovers - "attacker was taken into custody by the state trooper who had been assigned to the event" - I assume they had more security than that, because the threat against him has been repeated many times and quite recently

    Twitter temporarily banned Iran’s current supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in 2019 for tweeting that Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwa against Rushdie was “solid and irrevocable”.
    He is back on twitter (the ayatollah) - but has not tweeted today.
