Israel PM Netanyahu 'reaches coalition deal'

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached a deal to form a coalition government, officials say.

His Likud-Yisrael Beitenu party list will form a coalition with the centrist Yesh Atid and Hatnua and the far-right Jewish Home.

Mr Netanyahu was forced to give up his alliance with the ultra-Orthodox parties: Shas and United Torah Judaism.
