Man Self-Immolates in Rosh HaAyin

A man in his 50s set himself on fire Sunday in the city of Rosh HaAyin in northern Israel. Paramedics treated the man at the scene and transferred him to hospital, where he is in critical condition with third-degree burns to his entire body.

The circumstances of the event are not yet clear. Earlier in the year several people set themselves on fire and blamed a lack of government financial assistance as the cause.
