Labor to salvage nixed Tel Aviv memorial for Yitzhak Rabin

The annual memorial ceremony to mark the assassination of late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin has been cancelled due to lack of funding.

Organizers announced Sunday that the event will not be held for the first time since Rabin was murdered 21 years ago after being unable to raise sufficient funds. Though the artists and other celebrities who participate in the memorial appear for free, funds are needed to cover such expenses as security.
