The Israeli Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, has announced he will quit politics after the general election next January.

Barak, who was Israel's prime minister between 1999 and 2001, said he would now concentrate on his personal life.

Barak said he would remain as defence minister until a new government is formed.

The decision brings an end to a 53-year career in Israel's military and political establishment.

Ehud Barak served in the Israel Defense Forces for 39 years, rising to become the Chief of General Staff for four years from 1991 to 1995.
