Mass Protests in London Against Trump's Muslim Ban

IN PICTURES: Tens of thousands took to the streets in London to protest Trump's latest executive order.

Tens of thousands of protesters gathered in London and other British cities Monday to demonstrate against President Trump's executive order Friday banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

Trump's directive on Friday put a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Trump’s so-called Muslim ban put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily barred travelers from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Yemen – countries which have, either militarily or geopolitically, been in U.S. crosshairs for years.
