The US government has begun a partial shutdown after the Republican-led House of Representatives refused to approve a budget for next year.

 

A midnight deadline passed without agreement despite an 11th hour appeal by President Barack Obama.

 

More than 700,000 US government workers face unpaid leave with no guarantee of back pay once the deadlock is over.

 

Republicans have insisted on delaying President Obamas health care reforms as a condition for passing the budget.
