The man accused in the stabbing attack on Salman Rushdie has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and assault charges in what a prosecutor calls a “preplanned” crime. An attorney for Hadi Matar entered the plea on his behalf during an arraignment in western New York on Saturday. The suspect appeared in court wearing a black and white jumpsuit and a white face mask, with his hands cuffed in front of him. A judge ordered Matar held without bail after the district attorney told her Matar took steps to purposely put himself in position to harm Rushdie. The renowned author of “The Satanic Verses” remains hospitalized with serious injuries.
