Australia still no closer to gay marriage

While New Zealand has approved same sex-marriage, its neighbour may still have a long wait.

    New Zealand has become the first country in the Asia Pacific, and the thirteenth in the world, to legalise same-sex marriage.

    In Australia, however parliament voted against same-sex marriage to block a change in the law last year.
