Tears and anger - American officials and the public vent their frustration over Donald Trump's immigration order. The US president has also fired the acting Attorney General for refusing to enforce the ban. We look at whether the U.S. public was so keen to defend Muslim rights when similar restrictions were imposed by the former president Barack Obama. Billionaire investor George Soros faces a backlash in Europe over what politicians say are his attempts to influence politics on the continent. Russia's Paralympians could miss out on next year's Winter Games - that's as the blanket ban imposed for doping stays in place with qualifying already underway.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
