A Mexican priest is in hospital after being stabbed during Mass in Mexico City’s cathedral.
Father Miguel Angel Machorro is said to be in “delicate but stable” condition after Monday evening’s attack, according to government and ecclesiastical sources.
A suspect, who was reportedly detained on site as he tried to flee, told law enforcement officials he was a North American artist.
His identity has not been confirmed.
The assault left the priest lying on the ground, with blood soaking his clothes.
