Fifty-six-year-old Lod resident Yigal Yehoshua died on Monday, less than a week after being critically wounded by a mob of Arab rioters in the central Israeli city.

Yehoshua was struck in the head by a brick while in his car, as rioters hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails at police and passersby in the 80,000-strong Jewish-Arab city. A yeshiva, synagogues, municipal structures and dozens of vehicles have been torched during the unrest.
