Close race expected in Israel general election  

Israelis are set to vote in one of the country's most keenly-fought elections in years.

Tzipi Livni, Israel's foreign minister and leader of Kadima, is facing a challenge from Ehud Barak, defence minister and Labour leader.

But right-wing parties are also winning support, with Likud's Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman of Yisrael Beiteinu impressing voters. 

Al Jazeera's Mike Hanna reports.
