A federal appeals court has dealt another blow to President Donald Trump's revised travel ban targeting six Muslim-majority countries.
The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld a lower court ruling that blocked the travel ban. It's the first appeals court to rule on the revised travel ban. Trump rewrote the ban after several legal defeats. His administration will likely appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The appeals court decision blocks the administration from suspending new visas for people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

With long-standing European alliances facing new strain, President Donald Trump chastised NATO member nations for not paying their fair share to protect the long-standing pact and declined to explicitly endorse its mutual defense agreement.
That unprecedented one-two punch from a president in his first major speech in Europe further rattled a continent anxious about Trump's commitment to their bonds and reeling from another deadly terror attack.
The aftermath of that attack in Manchester, England, has produced further tension, as a British official said that police have decided not to share further information on the investigation due to leaks blamed on U.S. officials. Trump, who said there is "no relationship we cherish more" than the one with the United Kingdom, declared the leaks "deeply troubling" and said he was asking the Justice Department to lead an investigation into the matter.

Home searches across Manchester and beyond have uncovered important items in a fast-moving investigation into the concert bombing that left 22 people dead, Manchester's police chief said Thursday as a diplomatic spat escalated over U.S. leaks about the investigation to the media.
Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins told reporters the eight suspects detained so far are "significant" arrests, and "initial searches of premises have revealed items that we believe are very important to the investigation."
He did not elaborate, but those arrests around the northwestern English city include Ismail Abedi, the brother of 22-year-old Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi. The bomber's father Ramadan Abedi and another brother Hashim have been detained in Libya.
No presidential "pardon" here.
President Donald Trump's push to get in front of the pack at the NATO summit in Belgium is getting attention.
Video footage from the gathering shows Trump putting his right hand on the right arm of Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic and pushing himself ahead as NATO leaders walked inside the alliance's new headquarters in Brussels.
Trump then stands near Markovic and speaks to Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite. The video garnered attention on social media.
It's unclear how an alleged assault of a reporter by a Montana congressional candidate will affect the special election's outcome — in part because more than a third of the state's registered voters cast absentee ballots before polls opened Thursday.

House Speaker Paul Ryan called for Gianforte to apologize to the reporter, Ben Jacobs of the Guardian newspaper, while speaking at his weekly news conference Thursday.

Several people killed in Monday's Manchester concert bombing have been identified so far by authorities, schools or their families. They range in age from 8 years old to a Polish couple who had come to pick up their daughters.
Twenty-two people died in the explosion outside an Ariana Grande concert in the large British city, while 119 people were wounded in the city's worst attack, authorities said.
Georgina Callander, 18, was the first victim to be identified, as her former Manchester-area school, Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy, identified her.
"She was academically a very gifted student, very hard-working. Just lovely to speak to," deputy headteacher Peter Rawlinson said.
Medical officials said 12 children under the age of 16 were among those injured in the suicide bombing attack at a pop concert in England's second-largest city.
The children were among those people taken to hospitals after the explosion at Manchester Arena Monday night, where hundreds of teenagers and youngsters were attending an Ariana Grande concert.

Lieberman and Kasowitz are senior partners at the same firm and Lieberman's letter to President Donald Trump, which NBC News obtained, says he thinks it would be best to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.

The sand on Siesta Beach on Florida's Gulf Coast is as fine as powdered sugar, a pure, sparkling white and soft as a kitten's fur — all because it's comprised of 99 percent pure crushed quartz.
For that reason, and many others, it was selected this year as the best beach in America by a professor who's made a career ranking and studying beaches around the United States.
