The United Arab Emirates' interior minister says that police have arrested a female suspect in the stabbing death of an American schoolteacher in the country's capital and reveals that the attacker also planted a bomb outside the home of another American
Interior Minister Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan said that the makeshift bomb was left at the house of an American doctor and that police dismantled it after it was discovered by one of the physician's sons. Police say that the teacher was stabbed to death in a public restroom at an Abu Dhabi mall by a butcher's knife-wielding attacker wearing the full black veil commonly worn by Muslim women throughout the Gulf Arab region. Footprints Recruiting, a Canada-based teacher recruitment company that found a job for the victim, identified her as Ibolya Ryan.Police said that the victim had 11-year-old twins and that they were being kept in protective custody until their father, who's the victim's ex-husband, arrives in the country.
