HONOLULU - A federal judge in Hawaii indefinitely extended on Wednesday an order blocking enforcement of President Donald Trump's revised travel ban on travelers and refugees from six Muslim-majority countries.

US District Judge Derrick Watson turned an earlier temporary restraining order into a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit filed by the state of Hawaii, which is arguing that Trump's directive discriminated against Muslims in violation of the US Constitution.
