Bladon murderer sentenced

A TERRIBLE AND TRAGIC CRIME: TERRORIST GETS 18 YEARS FOR MURDER OF BRITISH STUDENT ON LIGHT RAIL. Hannah Bladon, a 20-year-old British exchange student, was stabbed to death in April 2017 (Yonah Jeremy Bob, Jerusalem Post).

Ms. Blandon was a religion and archaeology student at the University of Birmingham who was on an exchange semester at the Hebrew University. The murderer had serious mental health problems, which is why the plea-agreement involved a lower than normal sentence.
