Puerto Ricans vote for statehood in referendum

Puerto Rico's governor announced the US territory voted for statehood in a non-binding referendum on Sunday, held amid an economic crisis that has sparked an exodus of islanders to the US mainland.

US Congress, however, has the final say in any changes to the island's political status.

Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from San Juan.
