US Supreme Court agrees to hear Trump travel ban case

AFP , Monday 26 Jun 2017

The US Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear the case on President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban targeting citizens from six predominantly Muslim countries.

The high court also ruled that the measure can partially take effect -- a win for the Republican leader, who has insisted it is necessary for national security, despite criticism that it singles out Muslims in violation of the US constitution.
