Austrian Christian stabbed for reading Bible at migrant center

The 50-year-old was certainly saved from the knife attack, by her thick winter coat. She had gone to the Timekalm reception center in Vöcklamarkt in Upper Austria, to read the Bible at the request of Christian residents.

QWhen her 22-year-old alleged attacker from Afghanistan heard about it, he stormed into the kitchen where the woman was staying, before plunging a knife into her chest several times. The violence of the attack caused the victim to fall back. Protected by her coat, she was only injured in the ear.

Questioned by the police, the man admitted the facts which he considered "excessive", and defended himself by evoking "personal difficulties". He was remanded in custody in Wels prison in Upper Austria.
