Senate passes 'fiscal cliff' deal

Senate passes 'fiscal cliff' deal
The US Senate has approved a deal on spending cuts and tax rises to avoid the impending 'fiscal cliff'.

The bill raises tax on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples, but would prevent middle-class taxes from rising.

Barack Obama has urged the House of Representatives to pass the agreement "without delay", saying it is "the right thing to do for our country".
