US President Donald Trump has announced new vetting measures to "keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the US".

He signed the executive order at the Pentagon after a ceremony to swear in Gen James Mattis as defence secretary.

Hours after the president signed the order, there were still no details from the White House on how it would work.

But in a TV interview broadcast on Friday, he said Christians would be given priority among Syrians who apply for refugee status.

He has also vowed to curb entry for people from six other Muslim countries.
