Attacked cabbie dies in fare row

THE family of a taxi driver who died after being viciously assaulted in Dublin today said they are "devastated" by his loss.

Father-of-one Moses Ayanwole lost his battle for life last night after being assaulted on Dublin's Pearse Street in a row over a taxi fare.

Gardai are still investigating the exact circumstances that led to his death with sources saying they are hopeful of securing a manslaughter conviction.

Mr Ayanwole lived with wife and 12-year-old son in Hartstown, west Dublin.
