Israel’s prime minister has called on the US and its allies to wake up to the threat of Iran as talks continue to revive a landmark deal to limit the country’s nuclear programme.

Naftali Bennett said Iran’s regime of brutal hangmen wants nuclear weapons, something Iran has repeatedly denied.

Iran elected hardliner Ebrahim Raisi, the country’s top judge who holds ultra-conservative views, as new president, in a race widely seen as being designed to favour him.
