Democrats approve legislation to end US govt shutdown

The House of Representatives has approved legislation that would end a government shutdown in the US - but have ignored President Trump's demand for billions extra for his border wall.
It comes on the day the Democrats took control of the House after winning 235 seats in November's midterm elections.The legislation includes a bill to fund Homeland Security at current levels until 8 February, but crucially not the additional $5bn (€3.95bn) that President Trump wants to help build a wall on the Mexico border.
