A United Arab Emirates (UAE) court sentenced an Emirati woman to death on Monday for killing an American teacher in December, al-Arabiya television reported.
The woman, said by police to have become radicalized over the internet, killed a kindergarten teacher identified as Romanian-born Ibolya Ryan, a mother of 11-year-old twins, by stabbing her in a toilet at an Abu Dhabi shopping mall.
Al-Arabiya did not name the woman, but UAE media have named her as Ala'a Badr Abdullah al-Hashemi, aged 30.
