Israel's PM Netanyahu corruption: Pre-indictment hearing to begin

Netanyahu under pressure to form coalition but possible indictment means he faces pressure to step aside.

    Israel's prime minister is facing more legal and political pressure on Wednesday when pre-indictment hearings in three separate corruption cases begin.

    Benjamin Netanyahu maintains he’s innocent, but being indicted will make it harder for him to negotiate a power-sharing deal, after last month’s inconclusive election.
