Controversial British MP George Galloway has been taken to hospital with a suspected broken jaw after being attacked in the street.
Galloway, who also suffered a suspected broken rib and severe bruising to his face and head, was posing for pictures with people in Notting Hill, west London, when a man shouted a comment about the Holocaust and attacked him, according to his spokesman.
Police were quickly on the scene and made an arrest.
Galloway was taken to hospital, where he is expected to remain.
"George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him," his spokesman said.
"It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust."
The spokesman did not know whether the attacker was an Israeli, an English Defence League supporter or had some other motivation for attacking the Bradford West MP.
Galloway was interviewed earlier this month by West Yorkshire Police following a speech in Leeds in which he claimed Bradford was an Israeli-free area.
In 2008, Galloway was pelted with a rubber stress ball as he was campaigning in an open-top bus in London.
The firebrand politician received medical treatment, but was not taken to hospital.
A man was arrested and cautioned over the incident.
