News Brief


Ehud Olmert was questioned for the eighth time over corruption charges.

Investigators questioned the Israeli prime minister for over two hours on Thursday at his official residence in Jerusalem.

It was the first time Olmert has been questioned since he submitted his resignation over allegations of corruption scandals during his tenure as Jerusalem mayor and Industry, Trade and Labor minister.

Olmert criticized the police and investigators in a pre-Rosh Hashana interview printed Monday in the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot.
