A raft of retaliatory tariffs from the European Union against painful metals duties imposed by US President Donald Trump will come into effect on Friday, a top EU official said.

"We did not want to be in this position. However, the unilateral and unjustified decision of the US to impose steel and aluminium tariffs on the EU means that we are left with no other choice," the bloc's trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said in a statement today.
