Police question Sharon on bribes


Israeli police have begun questioning Prime Minister Ariel Sharon over a corruption scandal.
A businessman, David Appel, was charged last month with trying to bribe the prime minister.

As officers arrived at Mr Sharon's residence, it was expected he would be asked about conversations the two had.

Police sources said Mr Sharon, who denies any wrongdoing, would be questioned about the so-called "Greek Island affair" but gave no details.

Opponents of Mr Sharon have accused him of seeking to divert attention from the case by announcing a plan to evacuate Jewish settlers from Gaza
This case did start previous to Sharon making concessions over Gaza. Interesting to see how this will develop
