On Thursday, the Republican candidate for governor of New York was attacked by a man with a knife, but the congressman escaped unharmed.

A video of the Perinton event posted on the social networking site Twitter shows a man walking onto the stage and grabbing Lee Zeldin’s hand before both of them fall to the ground, with several campaigners interfering.


The attacker was detained, and the congressman continued his speech.

On Twitter, Lee Zeldin said he was “grateful” for being able to grab the attacker’s wrist in time to prevent him from hitting him in the neck, and thanked those who “quickly jumped from the scene” to the stage and stopped him. .

He added that “political results must be achieved at the polling stations, not on the stage of campaign events that try to hard-hit candidates they disagree with.”


Zeldin is running for office in November along with the current governor, Democrat Cathy Hochul.

New York Republican Party President Nick Langworthy told the Associated Press news agency that he had no details about the attacker or his weapon, but he later exchanged text messages with Zeldin as the congressman spoke to police. Langworthy said that Zeldin had “only a small scratch”.

Katie Hochul, in a statement, condemned the attack and said she was “relieved to know that Congressman Zeldin was unharmed and the suspect is in custody.”

Zeldin, a retired lieutenant colonel who has represented East Long Island in Congress since 2015, is a supporter of former President Donald Trump and was among the Congressional Republicans who voted against confirming the 2020 election results.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.
