The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists says a Yemeni journalist has been denied a visa to the United States where she is set to receive a press award.
The CPJ said on Sunday said that prominent Yemeni journalist Afrah Nasser may not be able to attend the Nov. 15 ceremony to receive the International Free Press Award.
The Trump administration in September announced the most recent U.S. travel bans, which include restrictions on Yemeni citizens.
Nasser, who is also a citizen of Sweden where she now resides, wrote on her blog that she applied twice and was rejected by both times by the American embassy in Stockholm.
"I am currently applying for the third time, and I am not optimistic," she wrote.
