Belgrade - Seven people were hospitalised after one person stabbed them with a knife shortly before midnight at the central Belgrade Square of the Republic during the New Year celebration, police said on Tuesday.

Two hours after the incident police were still looking for the attacker, most likely "an unstable person", Goran Stamenkovic, a senior Belgrade police official, told Tanjug news agency.

"We have received a description of the person that stabbed visitors, but the huge crowd at the New Year concert is slowing down the search," Stamenkovic said.

Three out of the seven were to undergo surgery, Blic daily reported on its web site, quoting medical sources.

Several thousand people gathered at the square where the City Hall has traditionally organised a rock concert for the New Year celebration.
