Israeli police are questioning Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for a 12th time as part of their investigations into corruption allegations.

Investigators arrived at Mr Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem as chanting protesters gathered outside.

Reports claim Mr Netanyahu is to be questioned concerning two corruptions cases in which police have already recommended indictments.

One involves allegedly taking gifts from billionaires, and the second involves trading positive media coverage for legislation to weaken a free daily newspaper.

Mr Netanyahu was last questioned by police in August concerning a corruption case involving Israel’s telecom giant.

The prime minister has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, dismissing the accusations as a media “witch hunt.”
