Man threatens self immolation over cell-phone debt
A man threatened to set himself on fire at an Orange branch in Petah Tikva on Sunday over an outstanding debt.
The man, a resident of Ariel, doused himself with gasoline and threatened suicide if the company did not waive his debt, estimated at about NIS 20,000.
Police arrested the man, and are considering sending him for a psychological evaluation.
On Saturday, Moshe Silman set himself on fire at a social justice protest after complaining that the the government had not adequately subsidized him after he suffered a stroke and became unable to work.
