    Israeli Police said several thousand people massed in central Tel Aviv today in the latest protest against the premier.

    Several hundred more attended a right-wing anti- corruption rally in Jerusalem, with speeches headlined by former defense minister Moshe Yaalon.

    Protesters in Jerusalem held signs reading "not right, not left, just straight." Police have questioned Netanyahu at least seven times, investigating two corruption allegations surrounding the four-term Israeli leader.

    They have said they suspect him of being involved in bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing.
