Rushdie taken off ventilator, able to talk a day after being stabbed, agent says

Salman Rushdie has been taken off a ventilator and was able to talk, his agent says.

Fellow author Aatish Taseer posted on Twitter last night that Rushdie was “off the ventilator and talking (and joking).”

Rushdie’s agent, Andrew Wylie, confirms that information without offering further details.

The suspected stabber, Hadi Matar, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and assault charges.
