Ala'a Badr Abdullah al-Hashemi Executed for Killing American

Ala'a Badr Abdullah al-Hashemi, the woman convicted of killing American teacher Ibolya Ryan in the United Arab Emirates last year, was executed on Monday.

Al-Hashemi, 30, was convicted in June for the stabbing Ryan in an upscale shopping mall in Abu Dhabi in what UAE authorities described as a terror attack, according to CNN which cited a government news agency.

 


The teacher's murder came two months after the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi warned Americans of an anonymous Internet post that supported attacks against teachers at U.S. and other international institutions.

Al-Hashemi had been cited with creating a bomb and then planting it outside of an apartment building, but it failed to explode. The Telegraph reported that al-Hashemi, may have been attracted to such actions by her husband.

Al-Hashesmi was caught on video camera inside Boutik Mall before she confronted Ryan, who was born in Romania and was the mother of three children.

"The speed of her execution at dawn on Monday, just two weeks after the initial verdict and death sentence were handed down and only seven months after the killing, is most likely intended to send a message to the United Arab Emirates' large expatriate population that they are well-protected," wrote Richard Spencer, of The Telegraph.

A video of al-Heshemi's interrogation was played in court before her conviction where she appeared to confess to the Ryan's murder.

"She started screaming for help and I pushed her to the wall where I stabbed her," al-Heshemi said in the video. "I don't know how many times, but mostly in her chest area."

Al-Heshemi said that she dropped the knife and "brushed past" one security guard after the stabbing and returned to her vehicle. Al-Heshemi then attempted to plant a bomb at the home of an Egyptian-American doctor, Mohammed Hassan Hassan, and sent a text message to an unnamed member of the Abu Dhabi royal family.

"The mujahideen have reached the midst of your home," the text message allegedly stated, reported The Telegraph.
