    US President Donald Trump's third attempt to ban travel to the US from several countries has been blocked by a federal judge in Hawaii, just hours before the executive order was to go into full effect in a number of countries, including Venezuela.

    The ban would apply on members of the government, military police, intelligence services and anyone that could have been involved in human rights abuses.

    The US says the sanctions are destined to hurt the government, but people in Venezuela remain defiant to the latest threat from the US.
