      Mofaz Walks Out of Cabinet Meeting

      Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz walked out of the cabinet meeting Sunday morning, angered by a cut in the Road Safety Authority budget in the proposed 2008 government budget.

      Traffic police were scheduled for an emergency meeting Sunday due to a wave of road accidents that left seven people dead over the weekend. The number of traffic-related deaths has reached 267 since January 2007.
