Uzbekistan Rabbi - Murdered

Arutzsheva: A leader of the Tashkent Jewish community in Uzbekistan, Rabbi Avraham Yugudayev HaCohen, was murdered last Tuesday on his way to the synagogue in Tashkent. The Rabbi’s wife notified police when her husband failed to return from the synagogue. Shortly afterwards friends found him lying mortally wounded on the street near where the synagogue is located. Rabbi HaCohen, 35, died of his wounds after being evacuated to the hospital.The local police suspect a criminal motive, but the local Jewish community is convinced that anti-Semites are behind the murder, because the Rabbi was not robbed of his possessions.
