Second Israeli in Three Weeks Murdered in Johannesburg

An Israeli businessman in his 50's who has been living in Johanessburg, South Africa in recent years, was pulled out of a car in front of his wife and children and shot to death over the weekend. It's the second killing of an Israeli in the city in the last three weeks.

South African police say the background of the murder is not clear, although one source said it may have been a gangland killing. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has notified the victim's family in Israel.
