Four are stabbed in mass pub fight.

FOUR men were knifed after a fight broke out in a pub and spilled on to the street.

Detectives were last night treating two of the stabbings as attempted murder and the other two as serious assault.

The victims, two aged 23 and the others aged 21 and 49, were taken to Glasgow's Royal Infirmary.

One of the 23-year-old men discharged himself a short time later.

But the other three were seriously injured and were still being treated last night.

Police have appealed for witnesses to the mass brawl, which flared inside the Honours Three on St Andrew's Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow, early yesterday.

Police are treating the attack on the 23-year-old still in hospital, and the 49-year-old man, as attempted murder.

In 2007, the pub was caught up in a botched drive by shooting by a gunman linked to the gang who killed schoolboy Kriss Donald.

A modified shotgun was used to fire ball-bearings at two men in a van as they waited at traffic lights outside the bar.

One of the three attackers is thought to have been a former right-hand man of jailed Imran "Baldy" Shahid, the ringleader of the thugs who killed Kriss, 15, in 2004.

There were no injuries but the attack left six bullet holes in the wall of the pub.
