Israel election: No clear winner, exit polls suggest
Exit polls are suggesting that Israel's governing Likud party and the opposition Zionist Union are neck-and-neck in Israel's general election.
Estimates by two Israeli broadcasters gave both sides 27 seats each in the 120-seat parliament, the Knesset.
Both would need support from other parties to form a governing coalition.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the vote as a "great victory" for his Likud party, which is credited with a better result than expected.
Jeremy Bowen reports.
