Israeli Elections

NPR Jerusalem correspondent Peter Kenyon reviews the results of the Israeli elections. Exit polls suggest Ariel Sharon's conservative Likud party claimed between 32-36 seats. It was not a good night for the Labor party, which lost about five seats. The biggest winner of the night may be the secular Shinui party, which more than doubled its representation in the Knesset.
