England: 16-year-old white girl stabbed to death by black thug
Christina Edkins had only been the top deck of the number 9 First West Midlands service for a matter of minutes when she was attacked as it pulled into a stop in Birmingham city center. The popular white teenager had been on her way to school. Emergency services rushed to the scene after the bus driver reported that a passenger had been wounded. But despite frantic efforts by passengers and paramedics to resuscitate her, she was pronounced dead at the scene. A 22-year-old black man was arrested a short distance away on suspicion of her murder after a huge manhunt. He was held in Harborne Road during a foot chase after officers spotted a black man who fitted the description of the suspect acting furtively at the back of Morrisons.
