US federal services face shutdown over healthcare row
The US government is facing a looming deadline to avert a shutdown of federal services amid political divisions over President Obama's healthcare law.
On Sunday, the Republican-run House of Representatives voted to pull the law's funding, raising chances of a shutdown.
The government needs to agree a new policy-wide spending bill before the US fiscal year ends at midnight on Monday.
If it fails, non-essential federal services face closure, with employees sidelined or left working without pay.
