Iran: US Travel Ban 'Racist', 'Unfair' 06/28 06:13

   TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran says the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to 
reinstate parts of a travel ban applied to six Muslim-majority countries is 
"racist" and "unfair."

   Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi was quoted by state TV Wednesday 
as saying it is "regrettable" that Washington "closes its eyes to the main 
perpetrators of terrorist acts in the U.S," without elaborating.

   The Supreme Court on Monday allowed President Donald Trump to forge ahead 
with a limited version of his ban on travelers from Iran, Syria, Sudan, Yemen, 
Libya and Somalia. The justices will hear full arguments in October in the case.

   Critics say the ban is intended to meet Trump's campaign promise of keeping 
Muslims out of the country. The administration says the restrictions are needed 
to keep out terrorists while it tightens vetting procedures.
