Washington, May 27: Two men were fatally stabbed on a crowded commuter train in the US city of Portland after they confronted a passenger who was “yelling a gamut of anti-Muslim and anti-everything slurs”, a police spokesman said. “It is unclear if he was directing (slurs) at specific people but witnesses told us he may have been targeting two girls described as Muslim, one wearing a ‘hijab’,” Portland police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson told CNN late Friday. The stabbing occurred on a Metropolitan Area Express (MAX) light-rail train on Friday evening. A suspect is in custody and is being treated for injuries, according to Simpson. (IANS)
