Israeli PM backs down after uproar over private planeIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday scrapped plans to fly to Washington with his family on a private plane and said he would instead travel with the official delegation. The reversal came after Israeli media reported that Netanyahu, his wife and two sons would be taking a separate flight to Washington for the White House ceremony marking the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Netanyahu, who was indicted on corruption charges last year, has long faced criticism over his family’s lavish lifestyle.
