South African police arrest Israel’s ‘most wanted gang leader’

An Israeli fugitive, described as the country’s most-wanted gang leader, has been arrested in South Africa’s commercial capital, Johannesburg.

He was arrested together with seven others during an early morning house raid, according to a police statement.

The 46-year-old man is believed to be connected to a criminal organisation in Israel called the Abergil Organisation. The gang is said to deal in drug trafficking, extortion and other criminal activities.

The suspected gang leader has been on Interpol’s red notice from 2015. He is wanted in Israel for conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder.

South African police seized five assault rifles, seven pistols and three suspected stolen motorcycles during the raid.
