The murdered woman was in her 60s and had been treated at the scene before pronounced dead a short time later.

The culprit is a 19-year-old man who was arrested after a Taser was discharged by an officer. According to the BBC, the authorities have said that mental health was a "significant factor" in the events. 

The attack came a day after the authorities announced that they will deploy additional 600 armed officers across the capital to protect against the threat of attacks.
