Chinese policymakers approved the nation's first law against domestic violence on Sunday.

The law "prohibits all forms of domestic violence" and has been hailed as a milestone in efforts to protect people from abuse in the home.

It was approved after a seven-day session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, the state legislature, and will come into force on March 1.
