Who is Carrie Symonds?

Boris Johnson’s girlfriend, Carrie Symonds, has been barred from visiting the US.

She had applied for permission to go to the US as part of her job with environmental group Oceana but the request was blocked, the Daily Mail reported.

The situation could prove embarrassing for the Prime Minister, who is expected to meet US President Donald Trump at the G7 summit in France which begins on Saturday.

The problem with Ms Symonds’ travel plans could be linked to a trip to Somaliland last year.

The US does not recognise Somaliland as an independent country, instead viewing it as part of Somalia.

As part of Mueller's Russia investigation, Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing Congress. In an op-ed for the Washington Post, Mueller said Stone is still a convicted felon, despite President Donald Trump's commutation of Stone's sentence. Because his sentence has been commuted, he will not go to prison. But his conviction stands.
