The Romanian parliament has voted overwhelmingly in favour of introducing a law allowing stray dogs to be put down.

The move came after a 4-year-old boy was mauled to death by a pack of dogs in the capital Bucharest last week.

The new law, which must be approved by the president, would enable the state to put dogs to sleep if they are not claimed within two weeks of being picked up from the streets.

Bucharest is home to an estimated 40-60,000 strays.
