An Israeli tourist who had gone on a trip to South America was murdered in the Bolivian capital of La Paz late Sunday night, Israel Radio reported.
According to the report, the man, 25, from Petah Tikva was exiting a night club when he was stabbed in an apparent attempted robbery.
The Foreign Ministry notified his family, and preparations are currently being made to transfer his body back to Israel.
Last June, an Israeli was killed during a trek in Costa Rica when a violent gang attacked his youth hostel. During the riot which ensued, the man was shot to death.
