SYDNEY - A British woman was stabbed to death on Wednesday at a backpackers' hostel in Australia and two people were injured, one seriously, in what police say may have been an "extremist" attack.

A spokesman for Queensland state police said the suspected attacker, in Australia on a tourist visa, was a 29-year-old French national who had yelled "Allahu Akbar" (God is great in Arabic) when arrested.

A 21-year-old British woman died at the scene of the attack, south of Townsville, police said. A 30-year-old British man was taken to hospital and was in critical condition.
