Deal announced to end US shutdown

US Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell have announced a bipartisan deal today to raise the US debt limit and end the government shutdown.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz, who had earlier opposed any compromise unless it defunded Obamacare, said he does not intend to delay consideration of the measure, which is expected to be approved later in the day by the Republican-led House of Representatives.
