Israel to hold fresh election as Netanyahu fails to form coalition
Israeli lawmakers have voted to dissolve parliament after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition government.
The vote triggered a fresh election, which will be held on 17 September.
Mr Netanyahu was unable to reach a deal for a fresh right-wing coalition following last month's election.
At the heart of the impasse was a military conscription bill governing exemptions for ultra-Orthodox Jewish seminary students.
It is the first time in Israel's history that a prime minister-designate has failed to form a coalition.

Kawasaki stabbing suspect carrying 2 more knives
KAWASAKI — The suspected attacker in Tuesday’s stabbing of 19 people — 17 elementary school students and two others — near Noborito Station in Kawasaki was Ryuichi Iwasaki, 51, of the city’s Asao Ward, according to the Kanagawa prefectural police.
川崎 -- 周二在川崎登户站附近发生的刺伤19人的事件中，17名小学生和另外2人被怀疑是袭击者，据 Kanagawa 警方称，该事件的嫌疑人是该市浅尾区51岁的岩崎龙一。
Iwasaki is dead after stabbing himself in the neck. According to investigative sources, police have confirmed that Iwasaki was carrying two other knives with him in addition to the two he used in the crime. They therefore increasingly believe that it was a premediated crime based on strong murderous intentions on Iwasaki’s part.
According to the prefectural police, two people were killed: Hanako Kuribayashi, 11, of Tama, Tokyo, and Satoshi Oyama, 39, of Setagaya Ward, Tokyo. Oyama was the father of another student and an employee of the Foreign Ministry.
根据县警方的说法，有两个人被杀: 11岁的泰马人 Hanako Kuribayashi 和39岁的 Setagaya Ward 人 Satoshi Oyama。小山是另一名学生的父亲，也是外交部的一名雇员。
The attack also left two children and a 45-year-old female parent with serious injuries, and 14 children with mild injuries, among others.
Sendai court rejects damages for pair forced into sterilization
SENDAI--A court here denied compensation for two plaintiffs who were forcibly sterilized as teens under the now-defunct eugenics protection law on grounds of intellectual disabilities, though it acknowledged that the practice was unconstitutional.
The Sendai District Court said in its ruling on May 28 that the 1948 law violated Article 13 of the Constitution, which guarantees the right to pursue happiness, including reproductive rights.
However, it rejected compensation demands by the plaintiffs--a woman in her 60s and another in her 70s from Miyagi Prefecture--citing the 20-year statute of limitations.
然而，法院以20年的宫城县为由，拒绝了原告提出的赔偿要求 -- 一位是60多岁的女性，另一位是70多岁的消灭时效。
The ruling was the first in a total of seven such cases filed with district courts nationwide. The pair had sought a total of 71.5 million yen ($653,000) in the lawsuit, which was filed last year.
