Sir Salman Rushdie's feisty sense of humour remains intact, family says

Sir Salman Rushdie suffered severe, life-changing injuries but his "usual feisty and defiant sense of humour remains intact", his family has said. The author, 75, has a damaged liver and severed nerves in an arm and an eye after he was stabbed at a lecture in New York on Friday. In a statement, his son Zafar said the family was "relieved" he was taken off a ventilator on Saturday.
