In Israel, tens of thousands of people marched through Tel Aviv Saturday, calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to step down and for an end to government corruption. A bill expected to be approved by the Israeli Knesset next week would bar police from publishing findings in two investigations into Netanyahu, who’s facing possible criminal charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Netanyahu has been accused of trading political favors for luxury gifts, including cigars and champagne, and other crimes.
