Police were questioning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Thursday for a second time as part of a probe into whether he illegally accepted gifts from wealthy supporters, media reports said.
Police declined to comment on the reports.
Various Israeli media reports said investigators arrived at Netanyahu's residence in central Jerusalem in the afternoon for a second round of questioning.
The criminal inquiry is focused on whether Netanyahu illegally received gifts from business people, according to Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, who is overseeing the investigation.
Israeli media reports say he allegedly received tens of thousands of dollars in such gifts.
His first questioning on Monday lasted some three hours.
The probe has shaken the country's political scene and raised questions over whether Netanyahu, 67, and in his fourth term as prime minister, would eventually be forced to resign.
