Republican and Democratic leaders of the US Senate have struck a cross-party deal to end a partial government shutdown and raise the US debt limit.

Their bill must also pass the House, where a small group of Republicans are expected to join Democrats to send it to President Barack Obama.

The measure extends the federal borrowing limit until 7th February and funds the government to 15th January.

 

It comes, just a day before the deadline to raise the 16.7 trillion dollars limit.
