Employers in the United States added 126,000 jobs in March - a gain far lower than previous months.

The slower gains mark a break from a 12-month streak where employers added over 200,000 jobs each month.

Severe winter weather, factory slowdowns, and dull construction activity contributed to the lacklustre numbers.

The US unemployment rate held at 5.5%.
