    Israel's prime minister is touring Europe to drum up support against Iran.

    After visiting Germany, Benjamin Netanyahu flew to France in an attempt to get European countries to join the United States in withdrawing from the landmark nuclear deal.

    His visit coincides with Tehran's announcement that it is increasing its capacity to enrich uranium.

    But French President Emmanuel Macron was not convinced.
