Supreme Court lets restrictions recommended by Trimp to take full effect

The US Supreme Court has ruled President Donald Trump's travel ban on six mainly Muslim countries can go fully into effect.But the directive against travellers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen still faces legal challenges.

The ruling covers the third version of the directive that President Trump has issued since taking office.On Monday, seven of the nine justices lifted injunctions imposed by lower courts on the policy.Only Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor would have allowed the president's order to remain blocked.
