LOS ANGELES - A federal appeals court reversed itself and temporarily reinstated the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the US military but it blocked the Defense Department from investigating or discharging anyone under the policy.

In an order issued late on Friday, a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals sided with a request by President Barack Obama's administration to temporarily reinstate the policy against allowing openly gay men and women to serve in the military.

The government has said it needs more time to prepare for an end to the controversial policy.
