Partial shutdown in US ends

The US government partial shutdown is ending after Republicans and Democrats voted for a temporary funding bill.
 
The Democratic leadership agreed to back the bill after accepting promises from Republicans for a debate later on the future of young illegal immigrants.
 
President Donald Trump, who signed the bill last evening, took a swipe at Democrats.
 
It is the fourth temporary measure since October because Capitol Hill cannot agree with a longer-term budget.
 
The spending bill passed the Senate by 81-18 and the House of Representatives by 266-150.
 
The so-called continuing resolution keeps the government funded until 8 February in the hope that Congress can reach a longer-term budget agreement in the meantime.
 
Thousands of federal employees who had been placed on temporary, unpaid leave since Saturday breathed a sigh of relief.
