The organisation representing African countries demanded that the United States President Donald Trump should apologise for his remarks that included calling nations on the continent "shitholes".

The African Union mission in Washington DC expressed its "shock, dismay and outrage" and said the Trump administration misunderstood Africans.

The United States leader made the averred remark on Thursday in a meeting on immigration.
