Israel election: Rivals claim victory as votes counted

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 10 April 2019

Both sides in Israel's general election have claimed victory but the final result is still too close to call. Exit polls show the centrist Blue and White Alliance led by political newcomer Benny Gantz has a narrow lead over the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud Party. However the projections suggest that Mr Netanyahu may be better placed to form a governing coalition with other right-wing parties. Robert Berger is the CBS news correspondent in Israel.
