Kevin McCarthy elected US House Speaker at 15th attempt
Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was elected Speaker of the US House of Representatives on Friday night after falling short in 14 previous rounds of voting.
Mr McCarthy had been stymied by a group of about 20 Republicans holding personal or ideological grievances against him.
Despite him offering a string of concessions, the rebels did not budge in their opposition during 11 votes earlier this week.
Mr McCarthy was declared elected with 216 out of 428 votes, triggering chants of "USA" in the House.
