Four men including a police officer were in hospital hospital Sunday after being stabbed during an attack at a mosque in the English city of Birmingham, police said.

Officers were called out to a mosque in the city's Ward End area late Saturday after reports that three men had been stabbed, said a spokesman for West Midlands Police.

While a suspect was being arrested one of the officers was himself stabbed, the spokesman added. All four of the victims were in a stable condition in hospital, he said.

Police are holding a 32-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder.
