Firefighters responding to a call in Tel Aviv discovered the body of a 70-year-old foreign national in a burned-out apartment on Tuesday.

Police investigators arrived at the scene on Dizengoff Street, and suspect the man was murdered.

While this was not immediately clear, a pathologist’s report later led to suspicions that he was stabbed.

Although the circumstances of the incident are not yet clear, homicide detectives believe the murderer(s) set fire to the home to cover up evidence of the crime.

Police are still attempting to ascertain the man’s origins, and have so far been unable to find identifying documents in the home. He may have come from France or Switzerland, they said.

A court-imposed media ban prevents publication of any further details at this stage.
