The Trump administration's request to reinstate its travel ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries has been denied by the US appeals court, amid an intensifying legal battle. Fires, smoke bombs and broken windows - this week a planned speech by a Trump supporter at California's Berkeley University was cancelled after riots against his appearance broke out on campus, and pro-Trump activists were attacked.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you.

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,
