American stabbed in Israel

An American tourist was stabbed to death and another woman wounded while hiking in foothills outside Jerusalem, Israeli police said yesterday.

JERUSALEM – An American tourist was stabbed to death and another woman wounded while hiking in foothills outside Jerusalem, Israeli police said yesterday.

“We are examining whether this is a nationalistic stabbing, but other leads are being examined as well,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, using Israel’s term for an attack by Palestinian militants.

Kaye Wilson, a Briton who immigrated to Israel, said she and Christine Logan, a visitor from the United States, were attacked by two Arab men while hiking Saturday in an area near Israel’s border with the occupied West Bank.
