The Supreme Court today allowed parts of President Donald Trump's travel ban to go into effect and will hear oral arguments on the case soon.
The court is allowing the ban to go into effect for foreign nationals who lack any "bona fide relationship with any person or entity in the United States." The court, in an unsigned opinion, left the travel ban against citizens of six majority-Muslim on hold as applied to non-citizens with relationships with persons or entities in the United States, which includes most of the plaintiffs in both cases.
Examples of formal relationships include students accepted to US universities and an employee who has accepted a job with a company in the US, the court said.
This is the first time the high court has weighed in on the travel ban, and a partial victory for the Trump administration, which has been fighting lower court rulings blocking the ban from taking effect. Justices did not address Trump's tweets which have caused legal problems for his administration previously.
The ban, which bars people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days
-- outside of the "bona fide" relationship exception -- could take effect in as little as 72 hours.

According to Punch
, a resident of the area as saying that the building has been abandoned for a long time and many residents of the area did not know the owner.

Boko Haram has released a video to confirm that it abducted policewomen.
In the video released through a journalist, Ahmad Salkida, the sect’s leader, Abubakar Shekau spoke for about 10 minutes.
He said several female officers were abducted during Boko Haram attack on a joint police/military convoy near Maiduguri on June 20.
His speech is then followed by scenes of the fierce attack, which took place on the Maiduguri-Damboa road.
In the 17 minutes and 25 seconds video, graphic contents of one of the terror victims are shown, as well as images of another set of victims perhaps about to be beheaded.
Shekau, takes credit for the attack and mocked Nigerian security officials for lying that Boko Haram had been defeated.
“I want to tell you that we are the one that attacked the convoy, here are the vehicles for all to witness, we are the ones that abducted the female police officers. In fact, they are senior female police officers,” Shekau boasted.
“What we did is nothing when compared to our women, children, and friends that have been wiped out or arrested for many years by the Nigerian government. We only abducted them to serve as slaves to us”, he added.
He also declares that the women his group abducted are fewer than 10 in number, and referred to them as “slaves”.

The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Osun West senatorial by-election, Senator Mudasiru Hussain has urged the people of the state to reject the Peoples’ Democratic Party again as they have done consistently in the previous elections held in the state.
He said this in Osogbo, capital of Osun State on Sunday while felicitating with Muslims on the occasion of Eid-elFitr to mark the completion of Ramadan fasting.
Hussain said PDP remains a dangerous party to the future of Nigeria and Osun State and urged the people of Osun West Senaorial District to vote massively for APC in the July 8 bye-election.
He urged Nigerians, particularly Muslims, to remember the sacrifice of the last one month and the rewards that lay ahead after the period of self-denial.
His words “We have all spent one full month in sacrifice and were ready to let go many things we would have desired all in obedience to Allah’s injunctions. If we therefore extend this to our national life, it is certain that our nation is on its path to recovering its glory.”
“we call on our people in Osun to show once again that the PDP is a rejected party. The case of Osun is enough reason for us to be confident that there is no alternative to the APC in terms of good governance.
“The PDP misruled Nigeria for 16 years at the centre and the destruction is what we are battling with now. Anywhere PDP shows its face, it is to the detriment of Nigerians and the case of Osun West is no different”, Hussain noted.Dailytrust

“I’m still pleading to Nigerians, everybody he offended that they should forgive him. Life is very very important. Once they have life, there is hope. I have said it earlier, let them take him to T.B Joshua.
I was in T.B Joshua in 2012, he said that if you see any criminal, that you should bring that person, so that when he gets his deliverance. He will know himself. It is something inside him that is messing up, not that person. I was telling God to forgive him. It’s a very big shame to me hearing this name.”

Eyewitnesses described terrifying scenes after an overturned oil tanker exploded in a huge fireball in Pakistan on Sunday, killing more than 150 people, including many women and children, who had rushed to the site to collect fuel spilling from the crashed vehicle.
Ejaz Hussain Lashari, a student, said: “I heard everyone sitting nearby crying for help. You couldn’t understand what they were saying. I could only understand everyone was calling for help. I saw a woman holding a jerry can screaming ‘my baby, please tell me where my little baby is’. Unfortunately we couldn’t do anything.”
Survivors described an explosion like a bomb going off, in the blaze which may have been sparked by a dropped cigarette, as villagers came running with jerry cans and buckets to collect the spilt fuel, after the tanker toppled off the main road near Bahawalpur.
The tanker, which was travelling from Karachi to Lahore and was carrying 25,000 litres (5,500 gallons) of fuel, may have had a tyre blow out while rounding a steep bend just before 6.30am.
As the fire spread, many of those who died were holding containers full of fuel. Local news showed billowing clouds of black smoke, and the road littered with burnt out cars and motorbikes.
Lashari told the Guardian that by the time the first fire crew arrived, 30 minutes after the fire started, “everything was burned into ashes. Bodies were beyond recognition and the injured were screaming.”
He said a huge crowd had gathered at the scene before the explosion. “Who knows if someone lit a cigarette?”
A loudspeaker on top of a local mosque alerted villagers to the leaking fuel, and scores raced to the site with jerry cans, said Rana Mohammad Salim, deputy commissioner of Bahawalpur.
Shukat Hayat, an inspector general with the motorway police, said officers tried to keep people away but were overwhelmed by the size of the crowd. It was too early to establish the cause of the disaster, he said.
The dash to collect the fuel can in part be explained by Pakistan’s chronic energy crisis, with frequent electricity blackouts exacerbating anger against the government.
Dozens of people were taken to District Headquarters hospital and Bahawal Victoria hospital, the nearest major health facility, where only days ago local community leaders had called for a burns unit to be established..
Those with up to 80% burn injuries were ferried to the combined military hospital at Multan.
Local officials on Sunday put the death toll at 153, with many more injured. “Around forty bodies were beyond recognition,” said Baqir Hussain, a rescue official from the area. Punjabi government officials said DNA evidence would have to be used to identify many of the bodies.
The death toll could rise further as another 50 people are still in critical condition.
Shahid Iqbal was approaching the site when he saw the black cloud of smoke rise. Many people from his village had already hurried there with containers hoping to collect fuel.
“The first thing came in my mind, a bomb went off, as security situation in the country was already tense,” he said. “Then people started shouting it’s a tanker that has caught fire, we started moving close to the site but the fireball that was there; there was nothing we could do.We couldn’t go close to it.”
Saznoor Ahmad, 30, whose two cousins were killed in the fire, said the crowd of people screamed as the flames engulfed them. “The fire moved so fast,” he said.
When the fire erupted, the mosque loudspeaker called on the remaining villagers to help put it out.
Mohammed Salim ran toward the smoke carrying buckets of water and sand, but said the heat was too intense to reach those in need. “I could hear people screaming but I couldn’t get to them,” he said.
Abdul Malik, a local police officer who was also among the first to arrive, said: “I have never seen anything like it in my life. Victims trapped in the fireball. They were screaming for help,” he said.
Firefighters fought the flames for over two hours before they were put out.
When the flames subsided the field was strewn with bodies, and nearby were the charred shells of motorcycles and cars that the villagers had used to race to the scene.
As the wounded cried out for help, residents wandered through the area looking for loved ones.
Zulkha Bibi was searching for her two sons. “Someone should tell me about my beloved sons, where are they? Are they alive or are they no longer in this world? Please tell me,” she pleaded.
The prime minister’s office said the Punjab provincial government had been directed to provide full medical assistance.
“Prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has expressed deep grief over the heavy loss of life in the unfortunate accident of oil tanker fire at Ahmad Pur Sharqia, Bahawalpur,” the statement said.
Imran Khan, the leader of the Tehreek-e-Insaf party (PTI), said it was a “national tragedy of epic proportions”.
Pakistan has an appalling record of fatal traffic accidents due to poor roads, badly maintained vehicles and reckless driving.
At least 65 people were killed in a similar incident 18 years ago in Punjab, when an overturned fuel truck in Adda Rodu Sultan exploded just as dozens had gathered to collect petrol.
