Rushdie’s agent confirmed the information to Associated Press without giving further details. The tweet has, however, been deleted now.

The 75-year-old Booker Prize winner suffered a damaged liver and severed nerves in an arm and an eye from about 10 to 15 stab wounds. Wylie had said Friday evening that he would “likely lose one eye”.
