Campaigners are protesting in London against Trump for third time in a week
Demonstrators have gathered outside the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square, London, for a day of campaigning and speeches against the controversial ban.
Stand Up to Racism, Stop the War and the People’s Assembly have come together to organise the event.
It is the third protest against Trump in two weeks and comes after he issued an executive order suspending entry to the US for nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries for three months to combat terrorism.

Trump's ban on Muslims must be opposed by all who are against racism and support basic human rights
More than 11,000 people have said they will be attending the protest to the Facebook page.
Yesterday, Londoners formed a human chain around a mosque in protest at the controversial president.
The controversial ban was blocked nationwide by a judge on Friday, but the White House plans to fight the decision.
A statement on the event’s Facebook page read: “Trump's ban on Muslims must be opposed by all who are against racism and support basic human rights.
“Theresa May's collusion with Trump must end. “
The protest is set to last until 2pm.
