Obama and Romney clash in debate

Help

US President Barack Obama has hit out at Republican Mitt Romney during a feisty 90-minute encounter in the second of three pre-election debates.

Mr Obama - widely perceived to have lost their first encounter - came out swinging in New York on the economy, tax and foreign policy.

But the former Massachusetts governor accused Mr Obama of broken promises and a record of failure.

Steve Kingstone reports from Washington.
