Switzerland votes to limit EU immigration

Switzerland voted Sunday to impose curbs on immigration by European Union citizens, in an exceedingly close referendum that threatened to ignite a row with Brussels.

“This is a turning point in our immigration policy,” said Toni Brunner, head of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which piloted the referendum campaign in a country that has steadfastly resisted joining the EU.
