Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicted on bribery, breach of trust charges


ISRAEL (CNN) – Major international news -Israel’s Attorney General unveiled bribery and breach of trust charges against Benjamin Netanyahu

It’s the latest move in the criminal investigation of the prime minister that began almost three years ago.

Netanyahu denies the allegations.

This marks the first time a sitting Prime Minister has faced a criminal indictment in Israel.

That indictment may be several months away because a reforming of Israel’s dissolved legislative body may not happen until April or May.
