WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US Supreme Court on Monday temporarily blocked gay marriages in Utah pending the western state's appeal of a federal judge's ruling allowing same sex marriage.

Utah's attorney general had filed an emergency request to stay the judge's ruling, which struck down a state law banning same-sex marriage as unconstitutional.
