Russell Square 'knifeman' who is accused of stabbing 64-year-old woman to death and injuring five others in a busy London street last night has been named as Somali-born Zakaria Bulhan who is aged 19. His victim has also been revealed to be 64 -year-old Darlene Horton - the wife of a Florida professor who was due to return to her native America later today.
As well as killing Ms Horton, Zakariah also injured five others including Israeli holidaymaker Yovel Levkowki, 18, who was slashed across the hand as she approached him to offer help after believing he was a victim.
Other victims include a British man who remains in a 'serious but stable' condition after being stabbed in the stomach. An American man, who suffered chest wounds, an Australian woman who was stabbed in the back and an Australian man who was stabbed in the chest, were all discharged from hospital today.
Zakaria is said to be suffering possible 'mental health issues' when he allegedly launched the shocking mass stabbing. He has been described as a 'quiet, shy pupil who was bullied at his London secondary school.’ He moved to the UK from Norway in 2002.
