Former leader Netanyahu votes in Israeli election: AFP

Israel's former leader Benjamin Netanyahu cast his ballot Tuesday in Israel's fifth election in four years, an AFP correspondent witnessed, as the right-wing politician eyes a return to power.

"I hope we will finish the day with a smile but it's up to the people," Netanyahu said as he voted in Jerusalem.
