Swiss voters have rejected a right-wing proposal for the automatic deportation of foreign law-breakers, a defeat for the country's dominant anti-immigration Swiss People's Party (SVP).
The SVP proposal was to expel foreign residents guilty of anything from murder to speeding, but it was voted down in a referendum on Sunday.
Activists and business leaders said it would violate human rights and complicate relations with Switzerland's main trading partner, the EU, which is already unhappy with a 2014 vote that backed quotas on EU workers.
The final tally showed 58.9% of voters opposed automatic deportations, with a turnout of more than 62%.

Military helicopters will scoop water out of nearby lakes and fly it up to pastures.
The army last took on similar missions during the 2003 European heatwave that killed thousands of people.
