Outcry as Donald Trump calls for US Muslim ban

There has been a storm of condemnation from Donald Trump's fellow Republicans after the presidential candidate called for a ban on Muslims entering the US.

Rival candidate Jeb Bush called Mr Trump "unhinged". Former US Vice-President Dick Cheney said it "goes against everything we stand for and believe in".

The White House, UN and Muslim leaders also criticised Mr Trump's statement.
