Rape charge dropped against Ashkenazi's ex-security man

The State Attorney's Office and the defense lawyer of the former security guard for IDF Chief-of-Staff Gabbi Ashkenzai reached an agreement Tuesday morning to remove a charge of rape against the accused guard, Erez Efrati.
Efrati will be tried only with committing an act of sodomy against a 22-year-old woman in the Tel Aviv port.
