VADUZ, Liechtenstein - Voters in Liechtenstein have overwhelmingly backed a new law giving gay and lesbian couples the right to formally register their partnership.
The government says 68.8 percent of voters approved the law in a binding referendum Sunday. About 31.2 percent voted against it.
Roman Catholic groups had challenged the law saying it would weaken traditional family ties.
