A US judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump's latest bid to impose restrictions on citizens from eight countries entering the United States, which had been set to take effect this week.

It was the latest version of a policy that had previously targeted six Muslim-majority countries but had been restricted by the US Supreme Court.
