Former Kadima leader Tzipi Livni on Sunday linked the plight of Moshe Silman, who set himself on fire at a Tel Aviv social protest on Saturday, to economic difficulties facing the nation.

"Moshe Silman got to the highest level of despair and lit himself on fire - awful. He is not the only one in this condition," Livni wrote on her Facebook page. "I hope that others will not follow in his footsteps and hurt themselves. We need soul-searching and systemic change now, as the economic situation stands to worsen and affect the lives of many."
