The US House of Representatives has passed a 1.1 trillion dollar budget hours before government was due to shut down at midnight yesterday.

The Republican measure was passed by 219 votes to 206 after President Barack Obama had urged Democrats to support the measure.

It will fund most of the government until September 2015, but some areas will only receive emergency funding.

Republicans won control of both House and Senate in elections last month.
