Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for an early general election in four months' time.

The vote is expected to take place in September, a year before he is required by law to seek a new mandate.

Netanyahu has been prime minister since 2009 while opinion polls suggest that he is by some distance the most popular politician in Israel.

It could also be a move to strengthen his own position if Barack Obama wins another term as US president later this year.
