Dozens of people arrived over the weekend to the scene of Friday's deadly shooting outside a pub in central Tel Aviv to commemorate the two killed victims and eight others wounded in the attack.

Those who arrived to pay their respects at 'Hasimta' bar on Dizengoff Street began a candle vigil for the attack which left dead one of the pub's manager's Alon Backal, 26, and Ofakim resident Shimon Roemee.

Bars and other entertainment venues in the area remained closed on Friday night.
