An American tourist was stabbed to death and another woman wounded while hiking in Israel, police said on Sunday.


"We are examining whether this is a nationalistic stabbing, but other leads are being examined as well," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.


According to reports, Kaye Wilson, a British woman who had recently immigrated to Israel, said she and Christine Logan, a visitor from the U.S., were attacked by two Arabic-speaking men while hiking on Saturday in a forested area south of Jerusalem.


Wilson told police she managed to survive by playing dead and eventually reaching a parking area where people called the police.


Logan’s body was found early on Sunday.


Police gave no details about Logan, aside from the fact that she was American. Wilson was treated in a Jerusalem hospital for several stab wounds.
