A Belgian national, in his 50s, has violently assaulted a German yesterday, at around 10 hours. The latter just landed at Plaine-Corail airport coming from Mauritius. He was joined by his fiancé, a Rodriguan who is about thirty and living at La Ferme.

The Belgian, residing in Rodrigues since four years, who has a weakness for the young lady, stabbed his rival with a kitchen knife in the parking area outside the airport. The 52-year old German was stabbed in the chest and arms. The young lady's brother along with other relatives managed to restrain the aggressor.
