US shutdown: Govt services closed as working week begin
« on: January 22, 2018, 03:04:30 pm »

Hundreds of thousands of federal workers will be unable to report for work on Monday, as the US Senate struggles to end a government shutdown.

The shutdown began at midnight on Friday, when lawmakers failed to agree on an extension to federal funding.

Efforts to reach a compromise ahead of the working week failed late on Sunday.

A vote to end the shutdown was postponed until midday (17:00 GMT) on Monday, meaning many federal government offices will remain closed.

The Senate held a rare session throughout the weekend, in an attempt to reach an agreement ahead of the working week.

But there was little sign of compromise, as Democratic and Republican senators blamed each other.
