President Trump says he may rewrite his travel ban,

:00:22.:00:24.

after his initial attempt to bar travellers from seven mainly Muslim

:00:25.:00:26.

But he said he hasn't ruled out an appeal to the Supreme Court

:00:27.:00:32.

It's unclear what his new immigration plan might look like.

:00:33.:00:40.

After a federal appeals court backed a stay of his executive order,

:00:41.:00:52.

Donald Trump vowed he would see his opponents in court.

:00:53.:00:57.

Speaking on Air Force One, en route to his weekend retreat in Florida,

:00:58.:01:00.

the President revealed he was actively weighing

:01:01.:01:02.

We'll win that battle, but we also have a lot of other options,

:01:03.:01:05.

including just filing a brand-new order on Monday.

:01:06.:01:07.

We need speed for reasons of security, so it could very

:01:08.:01:14.

Unveiled at the end of a frantic first week in office,

:01:15.:01:19.

the original order suspended America's refugee programme

:01:20.:01:21.

and banned travellers from seven majority Muslim nations

:01:22.:01:24.

It caused chaos at airports and sparked protests

:01:25.:01:28.

Quite how the White House might rewrite the order isn't clear,

:01:29.:01:35.

although lawyers would almost certainly have to address the claim

:01:36.:01:42.

that, in its existing form, the order is unconstitutional,

:01:43.:01:44.

in that it blocks entry to the United States

:01:45.:01:46.

Mr Trump has continued to insist that tough immigration

:01:47.:01:50.

measures are crucial to America's national security.

:01:51.:01:51.

Labour frontbenchers who defied Jeremy Corbyn in the Commons Brexit

:01:52.:02:01.

vote will be sent a formal written warning over their behaviour

:02:02.:02:04.

Mr Corbyn had ordered his MPs to vote to back Brexit.

:02:05.:02:08.

But 52 Labour MPs rebelled in Wednesday's vote,

:02:09.:02:09.

All rather unusual this? It is. Normally if a front bench MP votes

:02:10.:02:29.

against a direct order from the party leadership one of two thing

:02:30.:02:32.

happens, they resign or they are fired. For these 14 junior Labour

:02:33.:02:39.

frontbenchers who voted against triggering Article 50, ignoring the

:02:40.:02:42.

stringest possible order from their leadership, a three line whip, they

:02:43.:02:45.

are getting off with nothing more than a formal warning. In the next

:02:46.:02:51.

few days the 14 will get letters from the leadership team, insisting

:02:52.:02:54.

simply they must comply with the whip in future. Three of those

:02:55.:03:00.

rebels are themselves whips, means they face the potentially awkward

:03:01.:03:04.

task of persuading colleagues over the next few weeks to obey rules

:03:05.:03:09.

they themselves have just broken. By not firing these MPs, Jeremy Corbyn

:03:10.:03:13.

has saved himself a potential human resources challenge, because in a

:03:14.:03:16.

party where a significant number of MPs are refusing to work with the

:03:17.:03:22.

leadership as part of their top team, his options for finding

:03:23.:03:24.

replacements were potentially limited.

:03:25.:03:25.

Thank you. Three Iraqis have been killed

:03:26.:03:29.

after police forces protecting Baghdad's fortified Green Zone

:03:30.:03:31.

fired at protesters The demonstrators, who had

:03:32.:03:33.

gathered in their thousands in the heart of the capital,

:03:34.:03:36.

were demanding electoral reform ahead of provincial

:03:37.:03:38.

elections due in September. Thousands of British school children

:03:39.:03:44.

are to be offered intensive lessons in cyber-security,

:03:45.:03:47.

to encourage more teenagers to pursue a career in defending

:03:48.:03:48.

the country from online attacks. It's hoped almost 6,000 pupils aged

:03:49.:03:51.

14 and over will spend up to four hours a week

:03:52.:03:54.

on the subject in a five-year pilot. Daniel Kelly's a convicted teenage

:03:55.:03:57.

hacker, facing a jail sentence. In 2015, he took part

:03:58.:04:08.

in the massive digital break-in But what if his potential had been

:04:09.:04:12.

harnessed at an earlier age? He might have ended up joining

:04:13.:04:19.

a new breed of apprentices learning the cyber security trade like these

:04:20.:04:22.

at BT's headquarters. With that in mind, the government

:04:23.:04:24.

is putting up ?20 million, for nearly 6000 schoolchildren aged

:04:25.:04:31.

14 and above to take four hours of cyber security lessons

:04:32.:04:33.

after school each week. We think that will help seriously

:04:34.:04:39.

with this shortage Now, of course, will always

:04:40.:04:42.

keep it under review, in case this needs to get bigger,

:04:43.:04:52.

but getting it going on that scale, I think shows serious ambition

:04:53.:04:55.

to make sure that we can have the pipeline of talent that we

:04:56.:04:58.

will need in the years ahead. While the police are stepping up

:04:59.:05:05.

the fight, this is not a threat which can be defeated on the ground

:05:06.:05:08.

by raiding the hackers. The cyber crime battlefield will be

:05:09.:05:10.

online and Britain's GCHQ 58,000 people are now employed in

:05:11.:05:13.

the growing anti-hacking industry. But more will be needed

:05:14.:05:17.

and the government knows it has to start finding them

:05:18.:05:19.

when they are young. Volunteers in New Zealand say

:05:20.:05:29.

a further 240 whales have become stranded on a beach

:05:30.:05:32.

on the country's South Island. Hundreds have already died in one

:05:33.:05:34.

of the biggest ever mass strandings It's hoped they'll be able to swim

:05:35.:05:37.

to safety during the next high tide. You might find some

:05:38.:05:41.

of the scenes in this report Doing whatever they can to help

:05:42.:05:44.

before it's too late. These volunteers have been

:05:45.:05:53.

working for many hours, trying to keep the whales cool

:05:54.:05:55.

as they lie stranded. Some say singing also

:05:56.:05:57.

helps to keep them calm, but what they really need

:05:58.:06:00.

is high tide. Very quickly this tide has come

:06:01.:06:11.

racing in, and now we're all up to our knees,

:06:12.:06:14.

some people are up to their waists in water, and we're starting

:06:15.:06:17.

to get a bit of floating, and we're just helping assist

:06:18.:06:20.

the whales with their breathing until the water gets deep enough

:06:21.:06:22.

they can swim. This is one of the worst whale

:06:23.:06:24.

strandings in New Zealand's history. 400 whales came into

:06:25.:06:27.

Farewell Spit on Thursday. Rescuers managed to refloat 100

:06:28.:06:30.

of them, but they failed to stop Scientists don't know for sure

:06:31.:06:33.

why beaching happens. The whales could simply

:06:34.:06:39.

have become lost. One theory is that if a single

:06:40.:06:41.

whale gets stuck, others But once it has happened,

:06:42.:06:43.

it can lead to devastation. For those ones that restrand

:06:44.:06:50.

there's very little chance they will ever swim away,

:06:51.:06:52.

so we have to euthanise We do hope they coral their

:06:53.:06:55.

resources and head back out to sea. It's very difficult to manage that

:06:56.:07:03.

part of it, but dealing with the ones that are let

:07:04.:07:05.

is quite an issue. Efforts are stood down

:07:06.:07:08.

overnight for safety reasons, but the logistics of trying

:07:09.:07:10.

to save these whales and then dealing with

the aftermath if they can't It's one of the biggest days

won or lost? Well, good question, we spent so much of this week looking

:07:48.:07:51.

for clues in history, England's superior record in Cardiff when the

:07:52.:07:58.

roof is open, Wales' victory in 2013, 30 points against an English

:07:59.:08:03.

team buoyant then. What will be key is whether England's players can

:08:04.:08:07.

cope with the atmosphere, even with the lid off it will be a cauldron.

:08:08.:08:11.

Wales have experience where ever you look. Both teams will be desperate

:08:12.:08:18.

to be more urgent from the start than in their opening weekend. That

:08:19.:08:24.

is crucial for Ireland. One imminent Vic Friday for England, the women's

international is ongoing but England against Wales have scored over 60

point, they are looking like the professionalles which they are.

:08:33.:08:36.

I am sure the men's will be closer. Thank you.

:08:37.:08:38.

The early Premier League kick off is already underway at the Emirates.

:08:39.:08:43.

Arsenal are taking on a re-juvenated Hull City.

:08:44.:08:49.

Sanchez has put Arsenal ahead. Just after the half hour mark. Have

:08:50.:08:56.

another look because the replay show that is an Chez, he bundled it in

:08:57.:09:00.

with his hand, although whether he meant it or not is another question.

:09:01.:09:07.

Arsenal are in fourth but have lost the last two matches.

:09:08.:09:10.

If I am going to be honest, I get the impression

:09:11.:09:14.

I genuinely believe, you know - I was with him for a few hours last

:09:15.:09:19.

He didn't say I'm leaving at the end of the season,

:09:20.:09:23.

but I get the impression, looking at him, that's it.

:09:24.:09:25.

He mentioned when we were talking last night that

:09:26.:09:29.

This week marked one year to go until the Winter Olympics,

:09:30.:09:36.

They achieved a record-equalling four medals in Sochi three years

:09:37.:09:41.

ago, but that figure could yet increase as inevstigations

:09:42.:09:43.

The GB bobsleigh team may be upgraded to bronze,

:09:44.:09:48.

but have remained quiet on the issue, until now.

:09:49.:09:50.

They've spoken exclusively to our Olympic reporter Nick Hope.

:09:51.:10:01.

The British four-man team delivered an impressive fifth place in 2014

:10:02.:10:08.

but could they have been celebrating greater success? Russia finished

:10:09.:10:13.

first and fourth but the host nation's result have been

:10:14.:10:17.

discredited with the damning report alleging over 1,000 Russian athletes

:10:18.:10:21.

benefitted from a state sponsored doping programme. For me it's the

:10:22.:10:24.

biggest sporting scandal of my lifetime. I think it is huge. Do you

:10:25.:10:28.

feel like you are the bronze medallist? I suppose I kind of do.

:10:29.:10:34.

We were that close and we know that we competed clean. Clean. If I had a

:10:35.:10:39.

bronze medal it would be nice, the moment has gone, it is nearly four

:10:40.:10:43.

years ago, looking at the next one, its would be a nice but not the

:10:44.:10:48.

occasion it would have been. If it is changed who would that mean? The

:10:49.:10:52.

truth would be more important to me than receiving the medal itself. The

:10:53.:10:58.

International Olympic Committee are investigating the findings of the

:10:59.:11:02.

report, so no-one knows what will happen to the results from Sochi

:11:03.:11:06.

2014. What we know is that the city won't be hosting this year's

:11:07.:11:10.

skeleton and bobsleigh World Championship. They were stripped of

:11:11.:11:13.

that event. It will happen in Germany from next week. That is

:11:14.:11:17.

something the GB athletes are in favour of Until things are properly

:11:18.:11:21.

investigated I don't think it was safe to Sochi from a sporting

:11:22.:11:25.

perspective. We are required to provide whereabouts for where we are

:11:26.:11:30.

and provide samples at a moment's notice, it is safer being done in a

:11:31.:11:33.

country that we can trust at the moment. I don't think that country

:11:34.:11:38.

right now is Russia. Those stripped of the right Russia

:11:39.:11:44.

will compete in Germany next week, with the team hoping to challenge

:11:45.:11:48.

for a medal on the day rather than several years later.

Good afternoon, it is an afternoon to be tucked on the sofa with us

here, because outside it may look on the pretty side for some but for

:12:17.:12:22.

many it is grey and damp. One exception is the
