NEWS INTRO VIDEO

The Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives has voted to end a partial government shutdown - but the move looks certain to be vetoed by President Donald Trump. Trump has said he will reject any measure that does not provide funding for his proposed US-Mexico border wall. New House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has branded the wall "an immorality". The measures also require the approval of the Republican-run Senate - but senators have already ruled this out. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell said Republicans there would not back measures that Trump did not support and called the Democrats' move a "total nonstarter" and a "political sideshow".

In other news,

It is carrying instruments to analyse the unexplored region's geology, as well to conduct biological experiments. The landing is being seen as a major milestone in space exploration.
