Countries targeted under a new US travel ban passed by President Donald Trump have attacked the move, along with the United Nations.
On Monday, President Trump signed a new executive order placing a 90-day ban on people from six mainly Muslim nations.
The order was presented as a means to strengthen US national security against terror threats.
On Tuesday however, two of the countries, Sudan and Somalia, said the move was unjustified.
The directive, which includes a 120-day ban on all refugees, takes effect on 16 March.
It follows a previous order, which was blocked by a federal court, that sparked confusion at airports and mass protests.
What the order means
- Citizens of Iran, Libya, Syria, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, six of the countries on the original 27 January order, are again subject to a 90-day travel ban
- Iraq has been taken off the list because its government has boosted visa screening and data sharing, the White House said
- Refugees already approved by the State Department can enter the US. An indefinite ban on all Syrian refugees is also lifted
- Green Card holders (legal permanent residents of the US) from the named countries will not be affected
- Priority is not given to religious minorities, unlike the previous directive
