The US has defended President Donald Trump's travel ban and urged an appeals court to reinstate it in the interests of national security.

A 15-page brief filed by the Justice Department argued it was a "lawful exercise of the president's authority" and not a ban on Muslims.

The executive order temporarily banned entry from all refugees and visitors from 7 mainly Muslim countries.

A hearing has been set for Tuesday on whether to back or reject the ban.
