A stabbing spree in Israel killed one American and left at least 10 people injured Tuesday. The attack took place about a mile away from a meeting between U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and Israel's former President Shimon Peres.
According to Israeli police, a Palestinian man from the West Bank attacked bystanders with a knife along a popular boardwalk in Jaffa before being shot and killed by authorities. The militant group Hamas has praised the attack.
Vanderbilt University announced the American killed in the attack was Taylor Force, a business graduate student on a university-sponsored trip to Israel.
