Best pictures from protest against Trump's Muslim ban in London

After a federal judge placed a temporary halt on President Trump's Muslim ban, the POTUS took to Twitter in a series of angry tweets that you just have to see!

The passionate but peaceful protest was set up by groups including the Stop the War Coalition, Stand Up to Racism and the Muslim Association of Britain.

Dilowar Khan, chief executive of East London Mosque, said: 'We believe in a multicultural society, we believe in equality but Donald Trump is damaging the social fabric of our society'.

Demonstrators will gather outside the United States embassy in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, from 11am, to hear speeches, before marching to 10 Downing Street, where more stages will be set up.

Trump had a week ago signed an order putting a four-month hold on entrance of refugees into the USA and temporarily barred travellers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries.

Ukraine: Fighting flares up in eastern town of Avdiivka
A ceasefire specified in the 2015 Minsk agreement held until late December, and the conflict has been escalating since then. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has cut short an official visit to Germany.

The Lahore high court had ordered his release in June 2009 after the government failed to establish a case against him. He has vowed to continue his work and claims his detention was the result on pressure from new U.S.

But several industry insiders have argued that Canada is most likely not the target that Trump has set his sights on. The Trump administration has also threatened to impose its so-called "border tax" on cars built in Canada.

In all the protests and legal fights, the bright side is that the U.S. is a vibrant democracy and the people and the structures who believe in the worth of this system will put up a tough battle against those they believe are out to destroy it - in this case their president.

A few days ago the U.S. President Donald Trump held a meeting in Washington with the British Prime Minister Theresa May, the first world leader who visited the White House for negotiations with the newly elected POTUS, and that does have a reasonable explanation.

"Trump's ban on Muslims must be opposed by all who are against racism and support basic human rights and Theresa May's collusion with Trump must end", the organizers said.

Trump said he identified Muslim-majority nations for the travel ban from a government report on terror-prone states prepared during the Barack Obama administration.

MPs will debate the matter later this month - despite Downing Street insisting his visit will go ahead.
