Prime minister makes history

Luxembourg's prime minister married his civil partner yesterday, becoming the first serving leader in the European Union to wed someone of the same sex.

Xavier Bettel (42), and Belgian architect Gauthier Destenay were among the first men to marry under a new law, which came into force in the Grand Duchy in January and made it the latest on nearly a dozen EU states to allow gay marriage.
