Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ruling Likud Party has won a victory in the country’s election.

With nearly all the votes counted, Likud appeared to have earned 30 out of parliament’s 120 seats.

Exit polls had shown a tight race with the opposition Zionist Union but it wound up with just 24 seats.

Mr Netanyahu will now have a relatively easy time putting together a coalition government with right-wing and religious allies.
