Swiss Vote to Limit Immigration

Swiss voters narrowly approved new limits on immigration Sunday after nationalist groups campaigned for the measure by stoking fears of rising numbers of Muslims in the nation. Just 50.3 percent backed the proposal to introduce quotas for all immigrants, though the exact limits are undecided. About 500,000 of the country's 8 million are Muslim. The proposal's opponents argued quotas would hurt the Swiss economy and relations with the European Union.
