A foreigner, known as ‘Mahmoud’, was stabbed in Soi Ta-iad in Chalong, southern Phuket last night outside a Family Mart. The man was taken to Bangkok Phuket Hospital and is now reported to be in a stable condition following surgery. Doctors have told friends he will have to remain in hospital for observation for at least two days.

‘Mahmoud’ is an Egyptian tourist allegedly stabbed by a Thai man, according to sketchy reports.

Witnesses claim the stabbing was a result of an argument over the price of roti at a road-side vendor stall.
