Libya tops list again by new US Muslim travel ban

United States President, Donald Trump, has signed a revised travel ban banning citizens of 6 Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

Three African countries are affected by the ban which is expected to take effect after 10 days. Somalia, Sudan and Libya have made the list again.

An earlier ban which affected 7 countries was suspended by a federal judge, the result of which is the current one.

The 10-day period is believed to be in place to avert some of the chaotic scenes that were seen at US airports after the first ban which was to take immediate effect. The current order has also ‘freed’ Iraq from the ban. Syria, Yemen and Iran complete the latest list.
