BEIRUT - A Syrian Christian Orthodox family was turned back from Philadelphia International Airport after travelling to the United States from Lebanon, airport sources in Beirut said on Sunday.

The family of six were denied entry under US President Donald Trump's new ban on nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries, including Syria, and flew back to Lebanon via Doha, the sources said.
