Two men are in danger of dying after a fight broke out at around 10.10pm last night in Independence Road, Xewkija. One of them has been identified as a 24-year-old from Somalia who is a resident of Munxar, who was stabbed with a knife by another man from Somalia, and who resides in Marsa, aged 29.
In their statement, the Police said that when officers went on site, they also found another wounded man laying on the ground, whose identity has still not yet been established. From investigations it appears that this man was also injured with a pointed object by the same aggressor.
The two victims were admitted to Gozo General Hospital for treatment and were later certified to be in critical condition. The alleged aggressor is being held under arrest for further investigations.
Magistrate Dr P Coppini has opened an inquiry while a police investigation is also underway.
