A Palestinian man fatally stabbed a British student on Jerusalem’s transit network on Friday, Israeli police said.

Israel’s ambassador to Britain, Mark Regev, named the victim as Hannah Bladon on his Twitter account, adding that she was “murdered in a senseless act of terror.”

The incident occurred in a train carriage on the light rail network near the walled Old City. TV footage showed blood on the floor of the carriage with police officers restraining a man and carrying him away.

A paramedic for the Magen David Adom ambulance service said the woman had suffered multiple stab wounds and was pronounced dead in hospital.
