British tourist fatally stabbed in Jerusalem, police say

Hannah Bladon, 20, had been on student exchange at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, but was stabbed repeatedly by a 57-year-old Palestinian man on Friday (14 April).

"Hannah Bladon came to the Hebrew University as part of a student exchange from the University of Birmingham. We are providing support for her family at this hard time and are in touch with the local authorities".

Local media said a pregnant woman was injured when the light rail came to a sudden stop.

The attack occurred around 10:00 GMT on Friday, near Tsahal Square just outside the Old City where Christian commemorations were under way for Good Friday as Jews marked the week-long Passover holiday.

The alleged attacker was arrested after several police officers, as well as an off-duty policeman and another passenger who were both travelling on the tram, were able to apprehend him and remove the knife. Police said she appeared to be a student visiting the country as a tourist.

Hannah Bladon, 21, was stabbed multiple times with a kitchen knife by a Palestinian terrorist while riding on Jerusalem's light rail.

Hannah Bladon was a "caring, sensitive and compassionate" student who was studying at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
