A teenage suspect has been arrested after a Taiwanese national was yesterday fatally stabbed outside the Sydney headquarters of the Church of Scientology, Australian police said.

The incident took place when the 16-year-old suspect was asked to leave the church in Chatswood at midday yesterday, police said.

“With that knife he stabbed a 24-year-old, what we believed to be a Taiwanese male, in the neck, and he also caused lacerations to an older gentleman also escorting him from the premises,” police said.    [FULL  STORY]
