US Supreme Court overturns gay marriage ban
The US Supreme Court has struck down a law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman only, in a landmark ruling.
The court's 5-4 vote said the Defense of Marriage Act, known as Doma, denied equal protection to same-sex couples.
The decision means that legally married gay men and women are entitled to claim the same federal benefits available to opposite-sex married couples.
