Israeli stabbed in New York Chabad headquarters

The attacker, who appears in a video speaking English with a heavy accent, was shot by police who arrived at the scene, after he refused to put down his weapon.

He was evacuated to a hospital under arrest, and was pronounced dead at Kings County Hospital, police told local New York media.

A witness told the New York Daily News that the suspect entered the complex screaming: “I will kill the Jew, I want to kill the Jew.”

A Chabad spokesperson said the attack was most likely not terror-related.
