QUOTE: Israeli prosecutors announced an expansion of their corruption investigation into Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Friday, saying they suspected he fraudulently billed multiple state agencies for the same flights when he was mayor and trade minister and used the extra money for personal trips and vacations. In a statement issued after questioning Mr. Olmert for two hours, the police and the Justice Ministry said that the travel agency he used colluded in the alleged scheme by sending copies of the same bill to numerous public bodies and booking Olmert family vacations with the profits.
