Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been charged in a series of corruption scandals.
Attorney general Avichai Mandelblit issued an indictment on Thursday charging Netanyahu with fraud, breach of trust and bribery. Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing.
The decision to charge him is likely to deal a heavy blow to his hopes of remaining in office.
The allegations against Netanyahu include suspicions that he accepted hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of champagne and cigars from billionaire friends, offered to trade favours with a newspaper publisher, and used his influence to help a wealthy telecoms magnate in exchange for favourable coverage on a popular news site.
