Well, that was certainly a surprise. You can see the results by canon in German here. Every canon except four voted for the ban. The canon that was most opposed to the ban was Geneva, and the one most in favour of it was Glarus.
Now, as for the international reaction: it will depend on the way other countries treat religious minorities in their own land.

I'm not up to date with the specific regulations in each country though so I can't really say.
