Mr Adamowicz had been mayor of Gdansk since 1998.

The mayor of the Polish city of Gdansk has been left fighting for his life after being stabbed by a knife-wielding attacker in front of hundreds of people at a charity event. A rally against violence was also planned.

The country's interior minister, Joachim Brudzinski, said Adamowicz was hospitalized in a very serious condition.

UPDATE: Poland's Health Minister, Lukasz Szumowski, said on Monday morning that Adamowicz died from the injuries suffered in Sunday's attack, despite the efforts to save his life. Other Polish media reported that a knife was used in the attack.

A man is held on the ground by security personnel after he attacked the mayor of Gdansk during a charity event in Gdansk, Poland on January 13, 2019.

Government officials appeared to be pushing back against that accusation, strongly denouncing the attack and stressing that the 27-year-old perpetrator had a history of violent bank robberies and possible mental illness.

A report from Polish news outlet TVN claims that as the man got on to the stage he was shouting about being wrongly jailed by the previous government.

'That's why Adamowicz dies, ' the attacker said.
