Donald Trump is to sign a new executive order on immigration later on Monday, his aide Kellyanne Conway has said.

A revised order has been expected from the White House since the earlier ban was blocked by a federal court.

The previous order suspended the entire US refugee resettlement programme and blocked citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations from entering the US.

It sparked confusion at airports, as people with valid visas were turned away, and mass protests.

President Trump's administration argued that the ban was necessary to keep the US safe from terrorism.
