China Ambassador to Israel found dead in his home
Mr. Du Wei, China’s ambassador to Israel was found dead in his home in a Tel Aviv suburb on Sunday, an Israeli police spokesman has said. He was barely three months on the job in Israel.
Preliminary theory suggests he may have died in his sleep of natural causes, but inquest is still on.
He did not comment on the cause of death of Ambassador Du Wei, who was 57 years old and became ambassador to Israel in February, according to the embassy’s website.
“As part of the regular procedure, police units are at the scene,” Reuters quoted the police spokesman said.
Israel’s Channel 12 TV, quoting unidentified emergency medical officials, said initial indications were that Du died in his sleep of natural causes.
