RIO DE JANEIRO/BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who was wounded in a knife attack, will not be mouth-fed for the time being due to abdominal bloating, his doctors said on Wednesday, though he remained stable with no signs of fever or infection.

The far-right lawmaker, who is leading voter intention polls, was stabbed in a campaign event last week and is being treated at Albert Einstein Hospital in São Paulo. He will be fed intravenously, according to a hospital statement.
