Israel election: counting begins, exit polls show no clear winner

Early counting shows no clear winner in Israel’s historic re-run election, triggered by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s failure to form a coalition government earlier this year.

Exit polls showed Mr Netanyahu neck-and-neck with his main challengers, the centrist Blue and White coalition, after being accused of running the nastiest campaign in Israel’s history.
