A United Arab Emirates court Monday sentenced a UAE woman to death for the Islamist-inspired killing of an American kindergarten teacher in December, the state news agency WAM said.The court said the crime amounted to "a direct threat to the security and stability of society" and that the case was dealt with an anti-terrorism law passed last year by the UAE, a U.S.-allied Gulf state strongly opposed to militant Islam.However, executions are extremely rare in the UAE and it was not immediately clear when Hashemi might be put to death.
