Cigarette butt leads to indictment of 4 men on suspicion of attempted murder

Four men in Daliat al-Carmel were charged Tuesday with the attempted murder of a kiosk owner after a cigarette butt led to their arrest. According to police, the men in custody were hired as middlemen and hitmen by five of the kiosk owner's business competitors who plotted to kill him because of his plans to open a currency-exchange business in the neighborhood. On January 22, the two hitmen arrived at the town kiosk, shot the owner and fled. The kiosk owner was critically wounded and brought to Rambam Hospital in Haifa.
