Malta’s Labour Prime Minister Joseph Muscat joined around 1,000 people celebrating a new law on the Mediterranean island which recognises same-sex marriage on a legal par with marriage and gives gay couples the right to adopt.

The opposition Nationalist party abstained from the vote and said it had reservations about gay adoptions claiming 80 percent of the population were against the law.
