US health regulators have approved a weight-loss pill for the first time in 13 years.

Belviq, made by Arena Pharmaceuticals, can be used by obese or overweight adults with at least one condition.

The drug achieved only modest results in clinical studies, helping people lose on average about 5% of their body weight.

Belviq was rejected in 2010 because of concerns over tumours that developed in animals tested with the drug.
