      Akko Mayor: Would-be Assassins Wanted Me Replaced

      Shimon Lankri, the Mayor of Akko, was released from hospital this weekend, several days after he was wounded in an assassination attempt. “Those who tried to murder me wanted to replace the leadership in the city by assassinating the mayor,” he said Sunday.
