Four youths were arrested over the weekend on suspicion of being linked to a fatal stabbing of 20-year-old Laurence Amsis early on Friday morning outside of the Terminal nightclub in Tel Aviv.

Police say Amsis was set upon by a group of suspects on Rehov Hatzfira near the club following a verbal altercation in the nightclub, situated in Tel Aviv's Yad Harutzim area, which has been the scene of lethal violence in the past.

Soon after his death, police arrested two suspects aged 20 from Tel Aviv and Rishon Lezion on suspicion of being linked to the incident. The Tel Aviv Magistrate's court extended the suspects' custody by three days on Friday morning.

Two additional suspects, aged 18 and 22, both from Holon, were arrested on Saturday evening in connection with the stabbing.
