The people of Montenegro have voted for independence from Serbia in Sunday's referendum, official results show.
Celebrations began late on Sunday after unofficial results suggested the pro-independence block had secured the required 55% of the vote.
Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic said this was the most important day in Montenegro's recent history.
Turnout was 86.3%, and voters formed long queues at many polling stations.
Supporters of independence had argued it would bring faster European integration and a stronger economy.
But "No" campaigners said Montenegro was too small to survive on its own, and made their feelings known in the capital Podgorica.

About 55.4% of voters chose to end Montenegro's union with Serbia, official results show.
That was just above the 55% needed to allow the dissolution of the former Yugoslavia - remembered in communist-era monuments - to go ahead.
