An Afghan migrant stabbed a middle-aged Christian woman in the chest –
after he heard her reading from the Bible in an asylum seeker residence
where he lived.

The 50-year-old woman was stabbed with a knife while visiting in an
asylum seeker accommodation in Timelkam in Voecklamarkt in Upper

Her alleged attacker was a 22-year-old man from Afghanistan who had
taken offence to the fact that the woman had been invited by Christian
residents of the property to discuss the bible,Metro UK reports.

When he found out what she was doing, he stormed into the kitchen where
the woman was standing and tried to plunge the knife into her upper
body.Luckily her thick winter coat protected her from serious injury,
but she did injure her ear when she fell backwards from the force of the
man’s violent blows.

When questioned by police, the man accepted he had overreacted but claimed he was suffering from ‘personal problems’.

He was ordered remanded in custody and taken to Wels Prison in Upper Austria.
