Prosecutor: Israeli Foreign Minister May Be Charged

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman
Israel's attorney general has announced that Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman will be indicted on corruption charges, but allowed him a standard final hearing before charging him.

Lieberman, a senior partner in Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's conservative coalition government, had been under investigation for several years.

A statement from the attorney general's office said Lieberman would be indicted on charges of fraud, breach of trust, aggravated fraud, money laundering and harassing a witness.

Lieberman denies any wrongdoing, but could resign once formally indicted.
