Nevin Al Sukari - Sana'a - LONDON, April 6 — A journalist for an independent Iranian media outlet in London stabbed outside his home last week has returned to work, saying “the show must go on”.

Pouria Zeraati, a presenter for Iran International, needed hospital treatment for leg wounds suffered in the March 29 attack.

The 36-year-old said the stabbing was a “warning shot”.

“The fact that they just stopped in my leg was their choice,” he told ITV News.

“They had the opportunity to kill me because the way the second person was holding me and the first person took the knife out, they had the opportunity to stop anywhere they wanted,” he added.

Zeraati said he had returned to work yesterday, adding: “Whatever the motive was, the show must go on.”

London’s Metropolitan Police say the two suspects went straight from the scene in south-west London to Heathrow Airport and left the UK “within a few hours”.

Detectives were considering whether “the victim’s occupation as a journalist at a Persian-language media organisation based in the UK” could have prompted the assault.

Iran’s charge d’affaires in the UK, Mehdi Hosseini Matin, however, said Tehran denied “any link”.

The Met has previously disrupted what it has called plots in the UK to kidnap or even kill British or Britain-based individuals perceived as enemies of Tehran.

The Iranian government has declared Iran International a terrorist organisation.

The UK government last year unveiled a tougher sanctions regime against Iran over alleged human rights violations and hostile actions against its opponents on UK soil. — AFP
