The US Federal Reserve has kept interest rates at between 0.25% and 0.5% in the face of an uncertain jobs market.

The possibility of Brexit was one of the factors that led the US Federal Reserve to keep interest rates on hold, Chair Janet Yellen said.

The US central bank also said it expected a "slower path" for future rate rises.

It raised rates in December for the first time in nearly a decade.
