An American grandfather of eight and former school principal who was critically injured in a Jerusalem bus attack has died, according to hospital officials.
Richard Lakin, aged 76, was shot in the head and stabbed in the chest by Palestinian assailants who attacked passengers on a bus in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv (East Talpiyot).
In that attack, two terrorists boarded a bus on the 78 line. One of them opened fire, while the other attacked passengers with a knife until police arrived and subdued them. Two Israelis – Haviv Haim, aged 78, and Alon Govberg, aged 51 – were killed, and at least 16 others were wounded, among them Lakin.
