Overturning 150 year-old law

One of the world's smallest countries has voted to legalise abortion - overturning a 150-year-old law that criminalised it.

The Catholic nation of San Marino is one of the world's oldest republics and has a population of approximately 33,000 people.

Campaigners say it demonstrates "the citizens are far beyond politics".

The country's parliament will now draft a bill, allowing women to end a pregnancy.
