A leading candidate running for mayor of the German city of Cologne has been stabbed in the neck and seriously injured just a day before the elections. According to police, she was attacked because of her support for German refugee policy.

Henriette Reker, an independent candidate running for mayor of Cologne, was attacked by a man armed with a “20 centimeter-long” knife when she stopped at an information stand for the Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party (CDU). Her aide as well as three other people that tried to stop the attacker were also injured in the incident.

“She had arrived here just a few minutes before … She was talking to two other party members when it happened,” Bernd Petelkau, a local CDU official, said as quoted by Reuters.

The incident took place around 9:00am local time (7:00am GMT) at a Sunday market. Reker was severely injured in her neck and torso, and was immediately transported to hospital to undergo emergency surgery. There are conflicting reports about the current status of her condition.
