Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has said Sir Salman Rushdie's controversial novel The Satanic Verses would "probably not" be published today.

Sir Salman was attacked in August during a literary event in New York, where he suffered a damaged liver and severed nerves in an arm and an eye.

The Satanic Verses, his fourth novel, led to death threats in Iran in the 1980s.
