New Caledonia votes in independence referendum

CANBERRA (Reuters) -- The French territory of New Caledonia voted on Sunday in an independence referendum, the third and final ballot on the issue, amid heightened fears of violence in the tiny Pacific island.

The final vote is expected to be tight, after two previous polls, in 2018 and 2020, narrowed the "No" vote from 57% to 53%.
