Iraqi family barred from flying to US from Cairo

Cairo, Jan 28, 2017 (AFP)

An Iraqi family was barred from flying from Cairo to New York Saturday after US President Donald Trump signed an order restricting arrivals from seven Muslim countries, airport officials said.
The husband, wife and two children, who had American visas and reserved seats on an EgyptAir flight, were informed that they could not board because of the new regulation, the officials said.
Trump on Friday signed a sweeping executive order to suspend refugee arrivals and impose tough controls on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
EgyptAir representatives did not immediately respond to phone calls, and the airline’s website did not provide updated travel advice for the United States.
