A 20-year-old man was murdered and three more were wounded on Friday during a fight that broke out in Nazareth. He died in the city's Italian hospital after he was evacuated from the scene with critical stab wounds. Although paramedics who arrived on the scene were initially successful in their attempts to resuscitate the man, hospital personal could only pronounce his death after their efforts to keep him alive ended in failure. One of the wounded was in serious condition and the other two were in moderate condition. They were also taken to the Italian hospital. According to the initial police investigation, the fight was the result of an argument between two families over the transferal of a car's ownership. Police arrived on the scene to restore order and arrested three suspects for involvement in the murder, Israel Radio reported.
