Gulf carrier Qatar Airways will allow passengers barred by an executive order last week to board flights to the United States, after a federal judge blocked the move, an airline spokeswoman told Reuters on Saturday.

President Donald Trump on Jan. 27 suspended the entry of people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
