Young British woman is stabbed to death by Muslim in Israel

A young British woman has been killed during a knife attack in Israel on Good Friday.

The victim, who is in her 20s, was stabbed multiple times in the chest with a kitchen knife on a tram close to the Old City, where thousands of Christians had gathered.

Police say they arrested a 57-year-old Palestinian man who is ‘mentally unstable’ after onlookers wrestled him to the ground.

“According to an initial investigation, it seems he suffers from mental problems,” a police spokesperson said.

Earlier this year, Tamimi tried to commit suicide by swallowing a razor blade, according to the Shin Bet. He was also found guilty of sexually abusing his daughter in 2011.

He sounds like a very devout Muslim.
