A teenage girl died on Sunday of injuries sustained when an anti-gay extremist stabbed her and several others during an attack on Jerusalem’s gay pride parade last week, the Associated Press reports.
Sixteen-year-old Shira Banki died on Sunday, a spokeswoman for the Hadassah Medical Center said. Her organs will be donated.
Six people were wounded Thursday by Yishai Schlissel, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man recently released from prison. Haaretz reports that Schlissel had been serving a 10-year sentence after comitting a similar attack at the 2005 pride parade, when he stabbed three people.
