Israeli Ex-President Sentenced for Rape

Former Israeli President Moshe Katsav has been sentenced to seven years in jail after being convicted on two counts of rape and other offences.

The 65-year-old was convicted, at an earlier hearing, of raping an employee in the 1990's when he was tourism minister, and later during his presidency.

The court ruling also includes a two-year suspended sentence and a compensation of $28,000 to the main victim, state-run BBC reported.'
