OSAKA (Kyodo) A 61-year-old taxi driver sustained serious injuries when he was robbed in his cab by a man early Monday in Matsubara, Osaka Prefecture.

The robbery followed two slayings of taxi drivers in Osaka and Hyogo prefectures last week, prompting the police to investigate a possible connection because of certain similarities. In all three cases, the drivers were stabbed or had their necks slashed with a blade.
