15-Mar-12: Stabbed in Jerusalem this morning

A man on board a Jerusalem tram stabbed a nineteen year old girl this morning. Ynet reports that he stabbed her in the chest and hand. She was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in moderate condition. The stabber escaped and fled in the direction of Shuafat, an Arab neighbourhood of Jerusalem just a few minutes drive from where we live. The police say the hero waited for the tram to stop, then stabbed her and ran. The Jerusalem Post has a slightly different account: he is an Arab youth who rode on the tram until it reached the Pisgat Ze'ev station, where he stabbed the girl and ran. The Post says he has been caught. More details when we have them.
