TV: UAE sentences Emirati woman to death for killing U.S. teacher

A United Arab Emirates (UAE) court sentenced an Emirati woman to death on Monday for killing an American teacher in December, al Arabiya television reported.
The woman, said by police to have become radicalised over the internet, killed a kindergarten teacher identified as Romanian-born Ibolya Ryan, a mother of 11-year-old twins, by stabbing her in a toilet at an Abu Dhabi shopping mall. Arabiya did not name the woman, but UAE media have named her as Ala'a Badr Abdullah al-Hashemi, aged 30.
