Heavy security for Jerusalem Gay Pride year after deadly attack

Ultra-Orthodox Jew Yishai Shlissel (C), convicted of killing a 16-year-old Israeli girl during the 2015 Jerusalem Gay Pride parade, is escorted into court in Jerusalem on June 26, 2016Hundreds of Israeli police are being drafted into Jerusalem to protect the city’s Gay Pride march on Thursday, a year after an ultra-Orthodox Jew killed a teenager and also stabbed five other people. Shira Banki, 16, was killed at the march last August after she was attacked at random along with five others by Yishai Shlissel, who is now serving a life sentence. Shlissel had spent 10 years in jail after an almost identical attack on the 2005 Jerusalem Gay Pride march and had been released just three weeks before last year’s event, leading to criticism of police.
