A 25-year-old European tourist was stabbed to death Thursday near Jerusalem's Old City by an Arab assailant in an apparent terror attack, police said. The tourist was walking with a small group of tourists on Sultan Suleiman Street in the heart of east Jerusalem near the Flower Gate when the young Arab attacker approached them from behind and stabbed one of them in the back, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The assailant then hurled the knife of the ground and fled the scene. The tourist, who was critically wounded in the nighttime attack, died shortly afterwards of his injuries. Police said that the motive for the attack was apparently terror-related. The nationality of the victim was not immediately released.
