JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel's attorney-general on Wednesday informed Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman he faced criminal corruption charges, Israel's Channel Two said.

Lieberman, a senior partner in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative coalition government, had been under investigation on suspicion of money laundering, bribery and breach of trust. He denies wrongdoing but could resign once formally indicted.
