The state of the banned nations
President Trump put a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the United States and temporarily barred visitors from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. The Syrian refugee program, suspended until further notice, will eventually give priority to minority religious groups fleeing persecution. Trump said in an interview the exception would help Syrian Christians fleeing the civil war there.

FLEEING SYRIA: Syrian refugee Dania poses for a portrait at the Sacramento, California apartment complex she lives in, November 16, 2015. Dania and her family fled violence in Syria three and a half years earlier and arrived in Sacramento in September after living in Jordan. Her face is excluded from the photo to protect her identity. In 2015, President Obama directed his administration to accept 10,000 refugees. Though this was met with stiff resistance from Republicans, by August 2016 all 10,000 had landed in the U.S. Trump campaigned heavily against the policy, pushing an extreme vetting proposition.

SOMALIA: Until 2011, al Shabaab controlled much of the Horn of Africa country including Mogadishu. Its militants often stage bomb and gun attacks in the capital in their quest to topple the Western-backed government and impose their own strict interpretation of sharia (Islamic law) on the nation. In the past two years, African Union and Somali government forces have driven al Shabaab out of important urban strongholds but it remains active from bases in rural areas. REUTERS/Feisal Omar

FLEEING IRAN: A stranded Iranian migrant with a slogan reading "USA help Iran" written on his body, cries during a protest at the Greek-Macedonian borders near the village of Idomeni, Greece, November 28, 2015. The EU hopes humanitarian aid could help re-establish ties with Iran, an Islamic republic of some 78 million people, which has a high number of executions and ranks second in the world on the highest number of imprisoned journalists. Freedom of expression, rights of ethnic and religious minorities and women there all are a major concern for the bloc. REUTERS/Yannis Behrakis

The Wider Image: Yemen - displaced by war
FLEEING YEMEN: Tens of thousands of people have fled Yemen so far, mostly to Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan. Most of them are not Yemenis, but returning refugees and other foreigners. Given the immense hardships in Yemen, a greater refugee exodus might have been expected. However, penned in by ocean and desert, with only Saudi Arabia and Oman as direct neighbors, Yemenis have no easy outlets - although Riyadh now allows those already in the kingdom to stay. Flights out are irregular at best. Former havens such as Jordan now demand visas and set tough conditions. REUTERS/Abduljabbar Zeyad

FLEEING LIBYA: Since Islamic State emerged in Libya in late 2014, some 240,000 migrants and refugees have traversed the war-torn country. Over the past two years, Islamic State fighters have abducted at least 540 refugees in six separate ambushes, according to 14 migrants who witnessed the abductions and have since escaped to Europe.

FLEEING SUDAN: Darfuris are a constant presence in the ranks of the more than 1 million refugees and migrants who spilled into Europe last year, mostly to escape war and poverty in the Middle East and Africa. While violence in the western Sudanese region has ebbed over the past decade, the insurgency continues. The Khartoum government has escalated attacks on rebel groups in the past year, pushing a new wave of migrants to desolate camps in the relative calm of North Darfur. REUTERS/Eric Gaillard
