The Chinese ambassador to Israel, Du Wei, was found dead at his residence on the outskirts of Tel Aviv on Sunday, police said.
The envoy, who had arrived in Israel in mid-February, was found dead in his Herzliya home, spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP, adding that police were investigating.
Du’s wife and son were not with him in Israel.
Members of the police gather at the entrance of the residence of Israel’s Chinese ambassador.
The Haaretz daily said initial reports said staff had found Du dead in his bed and that there were no signs of violence.
It quoted a first aid service as saying the cause of death appeared to be a cardiac incident.
