Israel Postpones Netanyahu Trial as It Steps Up Coronavirus Fight


TEL AVIV—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial will be postponed by two months as Israel takes sweeping steps to confront the spread of the coronavirus.

The Jerusalem District Court—where he was charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust—said Sunday that the prime minister’s court date will be moved to May, after Justice Minister Amir Ohana placed the courts under a state of emergency.
