Argentina's lower house approves same-sex marriage

Argentina's lower house of Congress approved a law early Wednesday that allows same-sex marriage, the government-run news agency reported.

The Chamber of Deputies passed the bill 126-109 with five abstentions, the Telam news agency said. The vote occurred at 2:45 a.m. after 12 hours of debate, Telam said.

The Argentinean Senate will have to pass the measure before it can become law. It's not clear when that vote will take place.

    Потом повернулся к стоящим за его спиной легионерам и скомандовал:
    Нужна им теперь твоя звезда... помрачнел Кавин. Накрыли их чужаки после залпа, спецназ послали. Все мои ребятишки там остались...
    Вам нужен транспорт? спросил президент.
    А то! оскалился контрразведчик. С богом!
    Региональный координатор поймал направленный на него пристальный взгляд капитана Бальсета и замер. Так смотрят не на начальника, а на добычу. Да, именно так смотрит охотник на добычу. Флаг-адмирал открыл было рот, чтобы поделиться своими наблюдениями с коммандером Ферестером, но не успел.
