In Israel, voting for second general elections began today. It is the second election in five months as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeks to extend his term as the country's longest-serving prime minister.
As in the April vote, the right-wing Netanyahu is facing a strong challenge from ex-military chief Benny Gantz and his centrist Blue and White alliance.
The first exit surveys will be released just after polls close, while official results are not expected until Wednesday. (AIR NEWS)
