A US appeals court on Friday denied the state of Hawaii's request to issue an emergency order blocking parts of President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban on people from six Muslim-majority countries.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said it did not have jurisdiction to act on Hawaii's request. The US Supreme Court last month let the ban on travel go forward with a limited scope, saying it could not apply to anyone with a credible "bona fide relationship" with a US person or entity.
