Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has been found guilty of corruption by a court in Jerusalem.
Olmert was cleared on two other counts, reports the BBC. He was was plagued during his three years in office by a string of corruption scandals, and resigned in February 2009. The charges related to his time when he was a mayor, then a cabinet minister before he became prime minister in 2006. He will be sentenced later.
