Police charged a 32-year-old Israeli man with murder on Monday over the fatal stabbing of another Israeli national near Sydney's Bondi Beach at the weekend. Police found Hernan Guelman, 36, slumped on the sidewalk outside a convenience store late Saturday suffering from multiple stab wounds. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but died several hours later. On Sunday, the 32-year-old man reported himself to police over the stabbing, the New South Wales state police said in a statement. He was charged with murder and was to appear at Sydney's Waverley Local Court on Monday. Witnesses said Guelman was attacked by a gang of men, but it was not immediately clear whether anyone else was involved, police said. Guelman was a former Israeli soldier who had lived in Australia for three years.
