The man who murdered US Democratic leader Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan, was stabbed Saturday at a detention center in San Diego, where he has been detained for more than 50 years. The California prison department said "a prisoner" was injured around 2:30 pm local time in one of the prison courtyards. The victim's identity was confirmed by an anonymous source to the Associated Press (AP) agency.
 According to the TMZ website, the attack was extremely serious and the criminal had to be removed from the scene to be hospitalized.
 The suspect of being the perpetrator was sent to solitary confinement.
 Authorities will start an investigation to determine the causes of the confusion.
 Now 75, Sirhan killed "Bobby" Kennedy on June 5, 1968, during a presidential campaign, shortly after the Democrat declared a California primary victory. At the time, Kennedy was shot three times while greeting supporters at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.
 Five people were injured in the attack. The death of the then New York Senator came just five years after his brother, President John F. Kennedy, was the target of a fatal bombing in Dallas. Sirhan was sentenced to death, but when California abolished the death penalty for a few years, the sentence was converted into life imprisonment.
