WASHINGTON - The US State Department has received multiple cables from its embassies abroad reporting on the foreign anger and dismay at the US executive order curtailing travel to the US by seven predominately Muslim countries, a US official said on Monday.

Asked about the cables, a US State Department official said it remains in contact with its embassies abroad but added: "we will not comment on internal communications." Separately, Reuters obtained a copy of a "dissent channel" memo drafted by US State Department officials unhappy about the executive order, signed by President Donald Trump on Friday.
