Trump's controversial 90-day ban targets travellers from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

US President Donald Trump has suffered a new legal setback after an appeals court ruled against his travel ban on people entering the United States from six Muslim-majority countries.

Trump's controversial 90-day ban targets citizens from Libya, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The ban has drawn criticism from a cross-section of society within the US and also from across the world.

Artists, curators and top US museums have also echoed their opposition to Trump's isolationist policies.
