Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial has been postponed until 24 May due to a “state of emergency” in the courts.
Mr Netanyahu is being tried on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. His trial was due to open in the Jerusalem District Court on 17 March.
In the early hours of the morning, Justice Minister Amir Ohana issued the emergency order postponing all non-urgent court sessions.
It will be in force for 24 hours but is expected to be extended.
