Israel's Sephardi Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef spoke out against Thursday's Jerusalem gay pride parade stabbing in which six were wounded, two of them seriously.

"The punishment for the stabber today is the same as that of of any murderer," he said. "It cannot be that a man would carry out a crime like this, supposedly in the name of religion, and endanger a life."
