International News Briefs

Iceland's parliament is expected to legalize same-sex marriage within several weeks. The relevant bill was submitted by the nation's justice and human rights minister. The proposal also would allow religious organizations to perform same-sex marriages.

Iceland already has same-sex registered partnerships that are nearly identical to marriage.

Same-sex marriage is legal in Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Mexico City, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Washington, D.C.
