Tel Aviv Cabdriver Stabbed to Death


Avraham Davidi, 49, a cabdriver, was found stabbed to death last Friday night on a side street in a Tel Aviv industrial zone.

He was brutally attacked with a knife, but managed to call for help on his radio before he died.

Davidi did not give his location to police. When they found him, he was already dead. Neither the cash in the taxi not Davidi’s personal belongings were taken.

Cmdr. Gabi Last, Tel Aviv police chief, said Palestinian terrorists were not responsible for the killing, but did not offer further information.

Tel Aviv cabdrivers held a series of motorcade demonstrations over the weekend to protest what they called a lack of proper security measures.

A Ministry of Transportation spokesman promised government assistance in the installation of reinforced partitions inside the cars.
