Chinese Ambassador To Israel, Du Wei, Found Dead In His Home In Tel Aviv

                               Chinese Ambassador To Israel, Du Wei, Found Dead In His Home In Tel Aviv
Du Wei, the Chinese Ambassador to Israel, was found dead in his apartment in a Tel Aviv suburb in the early hours of today Sunday, May 17.

Wei, 58, was found dead on his bed and appears to have died in his sleep. He was appointed as China’s envoy to Israel in February this year. 
He was only appointed ambassador in February having previously served as China's envoy to Ukraine.
The ambassador was married and had a son but his family are not believed to have been in the country. He was living in the Tel Aviv suburb of Herzliya.
An Israeli police spokesman told Reuters news agency: "As part of the regular procedure, police units are at the scene."
Israel's Channel 12 TV, quoting unnamed medical sources, said initial indications were that Mr Du had died in his sleep of natural causes.
In a message published on the embassy's website just after his appointment as ambassador, Mr Du praised the relations between "the second-largest economy in the world and Israel the start-up nation".
On Friday, his embassy made a scathing attack on US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who had criticized China's handling of the coronavirus pandemic on a visit to Israel.
In a response published in the Jerusalem Post, the embassy condemned Mr Pompeo's "absurd comments", denying that China had ever covered up the crisis.

Mr Wei left behind a wife and a son. 

The Israeli police have launched an investigation into his death.
