Ex-mayor of Jerusalem jailed for bribery
(06-19 19:19)

An Israeli court sentenced a former mayor of Jerusalem to six years in prison for his role in a wide-ranging corruption case that also involved ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
The Tel Aviv District Court handed down the sentence to Uri Lupolianski, who was convicted earlier this year of accepting bribes in a controversial Jerusalem real estate project. Lupolianski, who can appeal, was also ordered to pay a fine of 500,000 Israeli shekels, or about US$142,800.
Lupolianski, who succeeded Olmert as mayor, is also to start his prison term on the same date.--AP
