Yruslm hundreds against Israel corruption charges facing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of people demonstrated Saturday outside his residence in Jerusalem. The demonstrations took place on Friday after detaining seven protesters who had staged similar protests against Netanyahu. The protesters were holding banners calling Netanyahu the "crime minister".
