An important Swiss parliamentary committee has voted in favour of the country's planned purchase of Swedish Super-Jas Gripen fighter planes.

The national security committee voted 14 - 9 in favour of the deal. They had previously postponed making a decision, following financial questions over the deal.

Switzerland is hoping to buy 22 of the jets, worth SEK 23 billion, the final decision will be made in the Swiss parliament next month, followed by a referendum by the Swiss.
