A federal judge in the United States has ordered a temporary nationwide block on President Trump's travel ban aimed at people from seven majority-Muslim countries.

The White House initially called the ruling outrageous and also described the President's ban as "lawful and appropriate".

President Trump's administration says it will challenge the court ruling. In a statement, the White House said it is designed "to protect the American people".

Trump sent this cryptic tweet last night, however it's not sure if this is related to the ruling or yesterdays failed attack in Paris.

US Airlines and border patrol have been told to allow people with valid visa documentation to enter the United States.

CNN have been following the story throughout the night.

More to follow.
