KABUL (Pajhwok): Chinese ambassador to Israel Du Wei has been found dead at his home north of Tel Aviv, the Israeli foreign ministry said.

Du Wei, 58, was appointed envoy in February in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

A police spokesperson said: “As part of the regular procedure, police units are at the scene.”

The ambassador’s death comes just two days after he condemned comments by visiting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who denounced Chinese investments in Israel and accused China of hiding information about the COVID-19 outbreak.
