This Muslim woman in Abu Dhabi stabbed an American mother to death in a bathroom before planting a bomb.
A veiled woman who stabbed an American teacher to death in an Abu Dhabi shopping mall toilet before planting a handmade pipe bomb has been executed.
Emirati Alaa Bader al-Hashemi, 30, was executed at dawn after she was found guilty of the killing of Ibolya Ryan, a mother-of-three, who used to live in Chicago.
She was also convicted of placing a handmade pipe bomb outside an Egyptian-American doctor’s home in the United Arab Emirates capital on the same day, although the device failed to explode.
The death sentence was approved by President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan last month but the state security court have not revealed how the execution was carried out.
During her trial, the court heard how Hashemi carried a knife into the bathroom of the mall in Abu Dhabi in what police called ‘a lone terror attack’ last December.
She laid in wait for Miss Ryan to enter the toilet and tricked her into coming towards her by claiming she needed her help, then stabbed her repeatedly.
