Body of man murdered in Uman to be flown to Israel

Partial autopsy performed on body of Breslov Hassid who was stabbed to death in Ukrainian capital; funeral scheduled for Monday

The body of Shmuel Tubul, the 19-year-old Breslov Hassid who was stabbed to death in Uman, Ukraine during a brawl with local youngsters was released from the hospital after an autopsy was performed only on the stab wound area, ZAKA chairman Yehuda Meshi-Zahav said Sunday.


Tubul's funeral is scheduled to take place in Jerusalem on Monday after his body is flown to Israel.


Interior Minister Eli Yishai said prior to the autopsy that he was making every effort to prevent the procedure. "If needed, I'll fly there myself to make sure there is no autopsy," he said.


Members of the Uman Jewish community are scheduled to hold a funeral procession near the tomb of Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, after which Tubul's body will be flown to Israel.
