Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three separate cases.

He has reportedly accepted gifts from wealthy businessmen and dispensed favours to try to get more positive press coverage.

He was charged by country's Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit. 

The announcement comes amid a political stand-off in Israel following two inconclusive general elections in April and September.
