Hundreds at memorial for Haftom Zarhum in Tel Aviv

Hundreds of people are at Lewinsky Park in southern Tel Aviv, a main meeting place for African migrants, for a memorial ceremony for Haftom Zarhum, the Eritrean man who was killed by a mob at the Beersheba central bus station on Sunday when he was mistaken for a terrorist.

A coroner says Zarhum died from a bullet wound and not from the beating he suffered. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said yesterday the people who ganged up on him shout be tried for their actions.
