Right-wing Israeli firebrand Avigdor Lieberman took his oath of office in front of the Israeli parliament on Monday, returning as foreign minister after he quit to fight corruption charges.

The 120-member house confirmed by a vote of 62 to 17 his reappointment, almost a year after he resigned to fight the corruption charges which he was cleared of last week.
