An anti-gay Orthodox Jewish extremist stabbed and injured six participants of an annual gay pride march Thursday in Jerusalem, police and witnesses said.
Police and medics said the assailant had wounded six people. Two were taken to hospital in serious condition.
Yishai Schlissel was arrested at the scene, according to police spokeswoman Luba Samri. Police said Schlissel was released from prison three weeks ago after serving a sentence for stabbing several people at a 2005 pride parade in Jerusalem
