Israeli soldier killed in stabbing attack

JERUSALEM (AFP) -- An Israeli soldier died on Wednesday after a Palestinian youth stabbed him on board a bus in the north of the country, police said.

"The Israeli soldier who was stabbed this morning by a Palestinian on a bus at the Afula bus station has died of his wounds in hospital," Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP.

Earlier, police had said he was in "critical condition" in hospital after the attack.

The 16-year-old Palestinian from Jenin in the northern West Bank was detained by passengers and security forces on the bus, Rosenfeld said.

"We consider this incident to be a terrorist attack motivated by nationalism," he added. more
