Northern Ireland's rival Irish nationalist and pro-British unionist parties have agreed to a draft deal that revives a power-sharing government in the region.

Friday's move comes three years after the government collapsed and left 1.8 million people with no regional government.

It paves the way to allowing the assembly to legislate on a wide range of issues and appoint regional government ministers.
