Israeli Exit Polls Show Netanyahu's Election-Redo Gambit Failed
(Bloomberg) -- Israel's election do-over looked set to produce a dramatic deadlock between legally embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his political opponents, with no clear sign who will form the country's next government.The lack of a decisive victory would be a stunning setback for Israel's longest-serving leader, who gambled on a revote to strengthen his political hand -- and possibly keep himself out of jail -- after a disappointing result in April. It would also thrust Israel into further political turmoil and drag out policy paralysis at a time when diplomatic and regional security challenges are mounting.Netanyahu's nationalist Likud and former military chief Benny Gantz's centrist Blue and White are running neck and neck, the exit polls indicated. But each would need to bring in governing partners, and neither has the support of 61 of parliament's 120 lawmakers, the polls showed. The political horsetrading will be hot and heavy in the coming days as Netanyahu, who is battling corruption charges, and Gantz each try to line up the most support. There's also pressure to yoke their parties in a national unity government, a move that might require Netanyahu to step aside -- or be forced out.While the exit surveys suggest Netanyahu, popularly known as Bibi, may lose his grip on power, it's too early to eulogize him. Netanyahu is known as "the magician" for his deft political maneuvering, and he's likely to try to peel off some backing from the opposing center-left camp."The results here are

Israel's Netanyahu appears to suffer setback in exit polls
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fell short of securing a parliamentary majority with his religious and nationalist allies in national elections Tuesday, initial exit polls showed, setting the stage for a period of coalition negotiations that could threaten his political future and clear the way for him to be tried on corruption charges. Initial results posted by Israel's three major stations showed challenger Benny Gantz's centrist Blue and White party with a slight lead over Netanyahu's Likud. While the results do not guarantee that Gantz will be the next prime minister, they signaled that Netanyahu, who has led the country for over 10 years, could have real trouble holding on to the job.

Liam Fox: Britain must accept that Iran nuclear deal is 'dead'
Britain must accept the Iran nuclear deal is "dead" and join America in trying to force Tehran back to the negotiating table, former defence secretary Liam Fox said tonight. Mr Fox, who was in the cabinet until July, will use a speech in Washington to warn that the 2015 agreement was "flawed" from the start and that attempts to keep it alive are "futile". The intervention is effectively a call for Boris Johnson to join Donald Trump in withdrawing from the deal and comes amid escalating tensions in the wake of the attack on two Saudi oil facilities.  Iran's supreme leader on Tuesday ruled out talks with US officials "at any level", appearing to end hopes of a meeting between Mr Trump and Hassan Rouhani, Iran's president, at the United Nations in New York next week. Meanwhile King Salman of Saudi Arabia spoke for the first time since the drone attack over the weekend, calling on fellow world leaders to deliver a united message of condemnation. This satellite overview handout image obtained September 16, 2019 courtesy of Planet Labs Inc. shows damage to oil infrastructure from weekend drone attacks at Abqaig  He called on the international community "to shoulder its responsibility in condemning the perpetrators" and "clearly confronting" those behind it. The threat of imminent military action appeared to have faded, for now at least, as the Trump administration sought proof to back up its suspicion that Iran was behind the attacks. Since pulling the US out of the Iran nuclear deal, which was struck by his predeces

"We believe that the deal to stop Iran from acquiring military nuclear capabilities is a building block we need to get back to," Merkel said during a news conference with Jordan's King Abdullah. "But there is also a long list of other burdens coming from Iran like the ballistic missiles program and its engagement in Syria," she said.

Woman Drunkenly Slammed Into Homeless Man — Then Kept Driving With Body in Front Seat: Reports
A California woman reportedly faces the possibility of life in prison after jurors convicted her last week of murdering a homeless man in 2016 when she drunkenly struck him with her car — then continued down the road for more than a mile with his dead body in the seat next to her.

Esteysi "Stacy" Sanchez, 31, will be sentenced on May 31 to 15 years to life behind bars in the death of 69-year-old Jack Ray Tenhulzen, the San Diego Tribune reports.

Sanchez was found guilty on Friday of second-degree murder as well as gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and hit and run.

Tenhulzen was mowed down along Mission Avenue in San Diego County early on June 27, 2016, as he walked on the sidewalk, according to the Tribune.

While Tenhulzen died immediately in the collision — his body smashed through the passenger side of the windshield — Sanchez did not stop driving.

Little more than a mile later, she parked her vehicle a block from her home and walked the rest of the way, according to the Tribune.

Jurors reportedly took a day to reach their verdict.

While Sanchez had no prior drunk-driving infractions, according to local TV station KSWB, prosecutors argued she committed murder given that evidence showed friends warned her not to drive home, according to the Tribune.

San Diego Deputy District Attorney Robert Bruce was happy jurors agreed.
