jerusalem stabbing 3393188b
Six people were stabbed in an attack on Jerusalem's annual gay pride march on Thursday carried out by an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man recently freed from prison after carrying out a similar assault a decade ago.

At least two of the injured were women, Haaretz reported on its website, included one said to be in a critical condition. Another two were said to be seriously hurt.

Witnesses said the attacker - wearing traditional black clothes of the religious Jewish Haredim population - ran into a crowd of marchers in West Jersualem's Keren Hayesod Street as they walked towards Liberty Bell Park for a rally.
