      Lieberman to Face Trial on Bribery Charges


      Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman will face criminal charges over alleged bribery, the attorney general announced Wednesday. Lieberman will be charged with receiving a bribe, violating public trust, money laundering, and tampering with a witness.
