Iran to act over ban


IRAN said yesterday it would take “reciprocal action” in response to the US Supreme Court allowing a partial implementa­tion of US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on six Muslim-majority countries.

Lower US courts had completely blocked Trump’s executive order issued in March, which includes a blanket 90-day ban on people from countries, including Iran and Libya and a 120-day ban on all refugees. But the Supreme Court on Monday ruled there could be partial restrictio­ns placed on refugees. The decision showed the US wished to discrimina­te against Muslims, said Iran’s Foreign Ministry. – Reuters
