Chinese Ambassador to Israel Found Dead in His Apartment

Posted by Brodie Kirkpatrick on

Last night, China's ambassador to Israel, Du Wei, was found dead in his Tel Aviv apartment. The 58 year old was appointed as the ambassador to Israel in February, after being China's ambassador to Ukraine. His body was found by embassy staff and EMS personnel responding to the scene believe his death may have been caused by a cardiac incident. No signs of foul play were found and it is believed he died in his sleep. Israeli's Foreign Ministry has reached out to the Chinese government to give their condolences and offer any assistance needed to conduct an investigation. China is expected to send a special team to investigate the death on Monday. Wei leaves behind a wife and son in China.
