A Muslim orthopedic surgeon who treated victims of the Manchester Arena bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in May was stabbed in the neck on Sunday as he entered a mosque in what police are labeling a hate crime attack.

Syrian-Jordanian Nasser Kurdy, a father of three, was walking into the Altrincham Islamic Centre in Hale, Cheshire, for mid-afternoon prayers just before 6 p.m. when he was stabbed.
