Jerusalem - Israeli police on Sunday recommended the indictment of ultra-nationalist Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on several charges, including graft and money laundering, a police official said.

"The police fraud investigation unit has recommended the indictment of Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on charges of bribery, money laundering and obstruction of justice," he told AFP.

The recommendation will be submitted in the coming days to Attorney General Menahem Mazuz, who will decide whether to indict Lieberman, who will be forced to step down if the indictment goes ahead.
