An Israeli man, with alleged ties to a criminal organization, was murdered in Costa Rica on Monday. The suspects allegedly killed him while passing him on a motorcycle.
Speculation arose among authorities over whether the murder was related to an ongoing feud between two criminal groups.
The incident is under investigation by the Costa Rican police, the Judicial Investigation Department (OIJ) and the National Police.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry is in contact with the Costa Rican authorities.
It is possible that the International Crime Unit of the Israel Police will contribute its resources to aid in the investigation.
In April, Orit Oged, originally from northern Israel, was arrested along with two others for the murder of a couple in central California late last year.
