CASTRIES, St Lucia (AP) - A man with a knife attacked the eastern Caribbean's Roman Catholic archbishop outside the cathedral in the St Lucian capital, slashing his clerical collar but not causing any injury, police and church officials said.

Archbishop Kelvin Felix was speaking with a parishioner outside the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception after Mass on Wednesday evening when the man grabbed him from behind and began slashing at his throat.
