Taiwan parties to restore partial ban on US beef

Taiwan's two main political parties have agreed to reinstate a partial ban on some U.S. beef imports.
Tuesday's decision by the ruling Nationalists and main opposition Democratic Progressive Party will restore a previous ban on ground U.S. beef and offal. The ban was lifted in late October, and the government's move caused public outcry over safety concerns.
Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-pyng says the decision is expected to be voted into a law Jan. 5.
