Another gay hate attack in London

Just days after the murder of David Morley in London, there has been another hate crime directed against a gay man, in north London this time. The victim, as yet unnamed, is a 25-year old who was visiting the UK to see his partner; the two were travelling back home at around 4am this morning by bus, when the attack took place. The victim is in "serious but stable" condition in hospital after being knifed in the neck, arm, and leg; his life is, fortunately, not thought to be in danger.

There is a CCTV image of the attacker, taken on the bus, and the Police are trying to trace him; let's hope they succeed so he can be punished severely.
