DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - The United Arab Emirates' interior minister says police have arrested a suspect in the killing of an American schoolteacher in the capital, Abu Dhabi.

State news agency WAM says Interior Minister Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan said on Thursday that the suspect also planted a makeshift bomb outside the house of an American doctor. He says the device was successfully dismantled.

Police say the teacher was stabbed to death by an attacker wearing the full black veil commonly worn by women throughout the Gulf Arab region.
