What countries are in Donald Trump's new travel ban? What is different this time?
The US President has provoked more outrage by issuing another travel ban on travellers from a number of predominately Muslim countries.
After Donald Trump’s last ban was suspended by the courts, here is look at how the new ban has been changed to get around legal hurdles.
What countries are in Donald Trump’s new travel ban?
The number of affected countries have been reduced from seven to six after Iraq was left out of Mr Trump’s new ban.
The new ban does not apply to Iraqis due to “commitments from the Government of Iraq” on vetting, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
“Iraq has taken steps to increase their cooperation with the United States in the vetting of Iraqi nationals and as such it was determined that a temporary suspension is not warranted,” the DHS said.
But Mr Trump's new ban still bars travellers from the same six other countries – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – for 90 days
The DHS said that these six countries have been “identified as presenting concerns about terrorism and travel to the United States”.
This map shows the countries affected by the old ban. Iraq has now been removed from the list.
Are Syrian refugees still banned?
Mr Trump’s new executive order has removed the indefinite ban on Syrian refugees. But the entire US refugee programme remains suspended for 120 days.
Does the ban affect travellers with a visa or green card?

Unlike the first ban, the new order makes an exemption for travellers from the affected countries who already have a visa or green card.

How will the ban be implemented?
The first travel ban sparked chaos at airports across America where some arrivals from the banned countries detained.
But the new travel ban will not take effect until March 16, giving immigration officers time to understand how it works.
How was the new ban announced?
Mr Trump unveiled the first executive order to great fanfare, sparking a fierce backlash and protests around the world.
But he quietly signed the new executive order and asked his top officials – including the Secretary of State – to explain the ban.
