    A new law banning ethnic studies programmes has gone into effect in the southwestern US state of Arizona.

    The state's Latino community claim the law targets them and say similar programmes in African American, Asian and Native American studies are not affected.

    The law comes months after Arizona passed a controversial immigration enforcement law.
