A woman was fatally stabbed today (April 14, 2017) by an Arab Muslim attacker just steps from Jerusalem's Old City, where thousands of Christians and Jews gathered for religious holidays at one of the busiest times of the year, according to the Washington Post website.
Thousands of people filled parts of the ancient city: Jews to celebrate Passover, which ends April 17, and Christian pilgrims for Good Friday.
The attack took place inside a car of the city's light-rail train not far from the entrance to the Old City's Christian Quarter.
The woman was treated for stab wounds and later died in a hospital, police said. She was not identified, but news outlets reported that she was a tourist from Britain. The suspect was identified as Jamal Tamimi, 57, of East Jerusalem.
