US Tourist Found Stabbed in Israel - TIME


The body of a female American tourist, bound and with multiple stab wounds, was found Sunday near a road outside Jerusalem, police said.

The woman's friend, a naturalized Israeli originally from the U.K., had reported her missing a day earlier after the two were attacked. She, too, had been bound and stabbed, but managed to escape her assailants, according to police.

Israeli Police spokeswoman Micky Rosenfeld identified the slain woman as Christine Logan. He said she was American but had no further details on her age or hometown.

Logan's friend, Kaye Susan Wilson, told police the two had been hiking in a nearby forest when they were assaulted by two Arab men. She, too, was bound and stabbed, but managed to escape her assailants, according to police.

After Wilson reported the incident, police launched a large-scale hunt by police and the military in the wooded hills outside Jerusalem before locating Logan's body, which apparently had been moved, early Sunday.

Around midday, Israeli police raided a hospital outside the nearby West Bank town of Bethlehem in search of suspects, believing the assailants might have been injured in the struggle. "I saw there were ... jeeps and lots of soldiers surrounding the hospital," said Edmund Shehadeh, director of the Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation. He said the troops wanted a list of patients and interviewed some doctors and nurses during the half-hour investigation. No arrests were made.

Senseless acts of violence by limited minds. No doubt the apologists / Israel hate mongers will be all over this post shortly.
Read about this in the Guardian earlier today, the British lass was stabbed 12 times, she noted that the attackers spoke Arabic, she played dead and managed to escape for help..

The was a tragic crime, but your last comment makes you look like a pillock. This was murder pure and simple you're the one trying to score snide political points, there is no call for it.

Removed. When you are right you are right. I wasn't hoping to score political points, simply preempt the inevitable. Seems any post with the word "Israel" invites rather negative posts by a small but vocal group of posters.
