World News: UK MPs back Brexit extension amendment

The Parliament of the United Kingdom has backed a proposal designed to force Prime Minister Boris Johnson to request a three-month Brexit extension from the European Union, prompting the British leader to shelve a decisive vote on his recently-brokered divorce deal.
MPs on Saturday voted 322 to 306 in favour of the amendment, which was brought forward by former Conservative MP Oliver Letwin and backed by a cross-party alliance of opposition legislators.
The amendment in effect prevents Johnson’s Brexit deal being approved until parliament has signed off on all requisite withdrawal legislation.
