Italy's government has won a confidence motion in the Upper House on a contested security decree, which tightens immigration regulations and bolsters anti-terrorism and anti-mafia rules.

The bill was supported by Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, who is also head of the far-right League, but was opposed by some members of his coalition ally, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement.

The government comfortably won the vote 163 to 59.
