Department of Homeland Security suspends flagging travellers under executive order

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Department of Homeland Security will stop flagging travellers from certain countries targeted by an executive order from President Donald Trump, a spokeswoman said on Saturday, in order to comply with a federal court ruling.

The Justice Department intends to file an emergency stay of the order at the earliest possible time, the Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman said.
