Teacher stabbed to death in UK school

British police have arrested a 15-year-old male pupil after a female teacher was stabbed to death at a Catholic school in a rare attack on educational staff.

Anne Maguire, a 61-year-old Spanish teacher, suffered multiple stab wounds in the Monday incident which was witnessed by other children at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds, northern England.

Violence at British schools has risen in recent years, and there has been growing concern over knife attacks involving teenagers. But fatal attacks on teachers are extremely rare.

Maguire's death is believed to be the first of its kind since 1995, when London headmaster Philip Lawrence was stabbed to death outside the gates of his school as he went to help a pupil.
