Uruguayans celebrate same-sex marriage

Uruguay is the second Latin American country after Argentina to allow same-sex marriage.

    City hall in Uruguay's capital, Montevideo, has started to accept gay couples.

    This month, Uruguay became the second Latin American country after Argentina to allow same-sex marriage.

    Sergio Miranda and Rodrigo Borda are the first couple to register their marriage, just hours after the law came into force.
