Jerusalem area police are holding two suspects and seeking a third in connection with the murder of David Caspi, a Jewish taxi driver from Neve Yaacov, who was shot though the head last Friday.

The 33-year-old Caspi, a resident of Neve Yaacov, operated the cab in partnership with his brother. The blood spattered vehicle with its headlights on was found by an Arab resident who called police. Caspi’s body was found nearby. His brother insists he was slain by terrorists. He was not robbed.

The two suspects were arrested on the basis of information provided by a 17-year-old Arab youth who was admitted to an East Jerusalem hospital with gunshot wounds.
