Woman arrested for the murder of American mother inside an Abu Dhabi mall was not a ‘lone wolf’

A woman suspected of stabbing an American teacher to death in an upscale Abu Dhabi mall has been arrested during a dramatic night-time raid.

The ‘face covered’ suspect is an Emirati national in her late 30s, said Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed al Nahyan, the minister of the interior for the United Arab Emirates, at a press conference on Thursday. Her name was not released.

This as UAE police have also told ABC News that the suspect was ‘not lone wolf’ and her house was ‘a base of operations’.
