Arabs attack Jerusalem taxi driver and steal his cab

Two Arabs assaulted a Jerusalem taxi driver early Friday morning and then made off with his car, police said. The passengers, who ascended the cab in the city's Givat Shaul neighborhood and asked to be taken towards an Arab neighborhood of east Jerusalem, sprayed tear gas at the driver and forced him out of the vehicle before making off with the cab, Jerusalem police spokesman Asi Aharoni said. The cab driver did not require medical treatment.
