Israeli parliament allows Katsav leave      (AP)
AP - Israel's embattled president gave up his powers temporarily on Thursday, but dozens of lawmakers vowed to have him dismissed so he could face sexual assault charges, including rape. President Moshe Katsav, who insists he is the victim of a conspiracy, stepped aside after a parliamentary committee voted 13-11 to grant his request to do so. He preserved his immunity by taking a leave rather than resigning.
