Jerusalem - Police have questioned Israel's Foreign Minister over corruption allegations for the fifth time since he took office.

A police spokesperson says Avigdor Lieberman was questioned for more than five hours by officers from the national fraud squad.

The questioning is part of a decade-old investigation into Lieberman's business dealings. The police spokesperson, Micky Rosenfeld, says the investigation includes possible bribery, breach of trust and other corruption suspicions.
