WASHINGTON - The US Senate voted to confirm Samantha Power as President Barack Obama's next ambassador to the United Nations on Thursday.

As voting continued, more than 70 of the 100 senators had voted in favor of Power, a former White House national security staffer who won a Pulitzer Prize for her study of US failure to prevent genocide.

She needed only 51 votes to win confirmation.
