Israeli tycoon Yuli Ofer dies at home aged 87

Yuli Ofer, one of Israel's richest men, has died at his home aged of 87 - just months after the death of his long-time business partner and brother, Sammy Ofer.

The pair built a sprawling business empire which included holdings in international , property, chemicals and banking.

The pair had divided up their assets in recent years, but media have reported that the brothers' joint worth ranged from $4bn (£2.5bn) to $10bn (£6.3bn).
