Yukos founder Khodorkovsky slashed

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the founder of Russia's YUKOS oil company, was slashed with a knife in the Siberian prison where he is serving an eight-year sentence, a statement on his Web site said on Saturday.

"Mikhail Khodorkovsky woke up in the night and realized that his face was covered in blood. The attacker cut Khodorkovsky's face with a cobbler's knife," the statement said.
