RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan in stable condition after prison stabbing”

A mugshot of Sirhan Sirhan that was taken in 2009.

In a follow-up email, Callison declined to identify the wounded inmate as Sirhan, citing department policy on not naming victims. "He was transported to an outside hospital for medical care, and is now in stable condition". The news website TMZ reported the inmate was Sirhan.

Authorities said a stabbing happened at a prison near San Diego on Friday afternoon (US time). The five injured men were taken to local hospitals for treatment.

An investigation into the incident has been launched with the view of establishing the motive.

A jury in 1969 found Sirhan guilty of assassinating Kennedy the previous year by opening fire with a.22-calibre pistol into a small crowd surrounding the Democratic candidate in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1968

Kennedy had just finished delivering his victory speech to cheering supporters at Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel when he made a decision to walk through the hotel kitchen. He was later buried at Arlington Cemetery, near his brother, President John F Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1963.

Sirhan Sirhan is held by onlookers shortly after the fatal shooting of Robert Kennedy in Los Angeles in 1968.

His death sentence was reduced to life in prison after the California Supreme Court ruled in 1972 that capital punishment violated the state Constitution's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.

Over the years, Sirhan has claimed to have no recollection of the shooting or his initial confession.

In a TV interview, Sirhan said he felt betrayed by Mr Kennedy's support for Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War.
