A Federal judge in Hawaii has reportedly blocked the new Trump administration’s travel ban. This comes just hours before it was due to commence.

US District Judge Derrick Watson cited "questionable evidence" in the government's argument that the ban was a matter of national security.

Meanwhile, several other US states are also trying to stop the ban.

The order would have placed a 90-day ban on people from six mainly Muslim nations and a 120-day ban on refugees.
