Hundreds of thousands of people joined protest marches

:00:22.:00:24.

around the world today, on the first full day

:00:25.:00:26.

The demonstrations are to highlight women's and minority rights,

:00:27.:00:33.

which protesters say are under threat from the new administration.

:00:34.:00:37.

Tens of thousands of people joined the rally in London,

:00:38.:00:39.

and other cities across the UK, but the biggest event

:00:40.:00:41.

Washington has a long history of public protest but even judged by

:00:42.:00:57.

those standards, this march is massive. Hundreds of thousands of

:00:58.:01:00.

women and many men as well poured into the capital to make their

:01:01.:01:05.

voices heard. I came from Hawaii to be here today and I am here to

:01:06.:01:09.

represent all the people back cannot be here. I am glad there is a lot of

:01:10.:01:13.

people who are willing to come and stand up for these things. I feel it

:01:14.:01:19.

is important. It's not that we hate Trump but we hate

:01:20.:01:31.

what he stands for. Bigotry and racism, we will not stand for that.

:01:32.:01:36.

It gives me hope for the future, it was a really dark day when the

:01:37.:01:38.

election results came in and seeing this gives me hope that we will move

:01:39.:01:41.

forward for the better. It is clear from the scale of this march that

:01:42.:01:44.

President Trump faces an enormous and perhaps impossible challenge,

:01:45.:01:46.

convincing these women and many more like them around the country that he

:01:47.:01:51.

governs for all America. He will need more than a prey to unite the

:01:52.:01:55.

nation. Mr Trump and his Vice President started their first full

:01:56.:01:58.

day in office at church with their families. The new President shows no

:01:59.:02:07.

sign of compromising with his opponents as his choice of music at

:02:08.:02:15.

this inaugural ball handed. Even as they danced, plans to repeal a

:02:16.:02:18.

President Obama's health-care were underway. We want to see great

:02:19.:02:26.

things happen for our country. We want to make America a great again

:02:27.:02:33.

and be well. Politicians around the world are now adjusting to the new

:02:34.:02:38.

era, Britain's Foreign Secretary give his reaction. Our new President

:02:39.:02:42.

has made it very clear that he wants to put Britain at the front of line

:02:43.:02:47.

for a new trade deal and that is exciting and important. But the

:02:48.:02:51.

German leader had what sounded like a coded warning for President Trump.

:02:52.:02:56.

TRANSLATION: I believe it is best if we work together based on rules,

:02:57.:03:02.

common values and joint actions on International trade and military

:03:03.:03:06.

alliances. There was less subtlety on the streets, these were the

:03:07.:03:10.

scenes in London at an anti-trump-macro demonstration. They

:03:11.:03:15.

were reflected here in the Kenyan capital Nairobi and in the

:03:16.:03:19.

Australian city of Sydney and in many other places. The elevation of

:03:20.:03:24.

a controversial populace to the most powerful office in the West has

:03:25.:03:25.

shaken the entire world. James Cook is in

:03:26.:03:27.

Washington for us now. How is this being reported and what

:03:28.:03:29.

message for the new President? Well, I think it is difficult to

:03:30.:03:40.

ignore the scale of the opposition to the new President Donald Trump,

:03:41.:03:44.

not only here in Washington, DC and as we saw around the world, but

:03:45.:03:49.

across the United States. More than 600 marchers are planned today and

:03:50.:03:54.

in fact they are even marching or at least demonstrating against as far

:03:55.:03:58.

as way as a research station in Antarctica. What the White House and

:03:59.:04:06.

President Trump would say is that his supporters are in great number

:04:07.:04:08.

as well and that many of them perhaps do not travel to the likes

:04:09.:04:11.

of Washington, DC, the swampy has said he wants to drain, not least

:04:12.:04:14.

because at least according to his side, they are the poorer members of

:04:15.:04:19.

society for whom he says he will stick up. It has become a cliche to

:04:20.:04:24.

say that this country is divided and as for Mr Trump, this afternoon we

:04:25.:04:29.

expect him to go and meet the CIA, that will be potentially very

:04:30.:04:34.

interesting, possibly fraught, given his conflict with the intelligence

:04:35.:04:43.

services during the latter stages of the election campaign and following

:04:44.:04:45.

his election with their assessment that Russia had attempted to

:04:46.:04:47.

interfere in the US election on his behalf. Clearly the wheels of

:04:48.:04:49.

government are going into motion and he is now in charge. Indeed. Thank

:04:50.:04:51.

you very much. Ukip's candidate for

the seat off Labour, whose previous MP Tristam Hunt stood

:04:59.:05:00.

down to become the head of the V museum.

Our political correspondent Iain Watson is here -

was campaigning ahead of another by-election today. It is a Labour

:05:53.:05:54.

seat but people there and local campaigners are saying that there

:05:55.:05:57.

are undecided voters. It represents high stakes. Thank you.

:05:58.:06:01.

Sixteen people - mostly teenagers - have been killed in Verona

:06:02.:06:04.

in northern Italy after their bus hit a highway barrier

:06:05.:06:06.

and caught fire. The school students from Hungary

:06:07.:06:08.

were returning from a skiing trip with teachers and parents

:06:09.:06:10.

Around forty people were also injured.

:06:11.:06:17.

Twenty-three people are still missing three days

:06:18.:06:19.

after an avalanche buried and partly destroyed a hotel in central Italy.

:06:20.:06:22.

Nine people, including four children, have so far been pulled

:06:23.:06:24.

From the ruins of the hotel, in the last moments of light on the third

:06:25.:06:44.

day, rescuers pulled this six-year-old girl to safety. She was

:06:45.:06:48.

the final member of her family to be saved. Relief workers then carried

:06:49.:06:53.

away a boy who had been with her. Concrete walls had protected them

:06:54.:06:59.

from the avalanche. Later, rescuers made their way to for more

:07:00.:07:03.

survivors, two men and two women. The rescued adults and children were

:07:04.:07:08.

flown to hospital in a coastal city where they are recovering quickly.

:07:09.:07:14.

TRANSLATION: The medical condition of the survivors is good. Only one

:07:15.:07:18.

patient is currently in the operating theatre having surgery on

:07:19.:07:22.

their right arm. The survivors family members can now breathe

:07:23.:07:28.

again. TRANSLATION: Doesn't my face show

:07:29.:07:32.

how happy I am? It is great. I cannot describe it in words. I would

:07:33.:07:36.

like to see him but for now the boy is safe. Fresh rescue teams prepared

:07:37.:07:40.

to relieve their exhausted colleagues this morning. They have

:07:41.:07:47.

plenty of work ahead. TRANSLATION: We are going to take

:07:48.:07:50.

over. The rescue operation will continue through the night. We are

:07:51.:07:54.

convinced that we will find other people still alive. To find them,

:07:55.:08:00.

they will have to dig through tonnes of snow, rock and concrete. How many

:08:01.:08:04.

more survivors might there be underneath all of this? James

:08:05.:08:07.

Reynolds, BBC News, Rome. Onto sport and Wayne Rooney has

:08:08.:08:10.

become Manchester United's leading goalscorer.

:08:11.:08:12.

His equaliser against Stoke City this afternoon was his two hundred

:08:13.:08:14.

and fiftieth for the club and takes him past the record

:08:15.:08:16.

of Sir Bobby Charlton. British number One Johanna Konta

Denmark's Caroline Wozniaki to make it though to the fourth

:08:39.:08:53.

received in Melbourne as Johanna Konta, she was after all born in

:08:54.:08:56.

Australia, played for Australia and is currently, they think, playing

:08:57.:09:01.

like an Australian. Whatever her nationality, she is becoming

:09:02.:09:04.

world-class, her power broke the former number one Caroline Wozniaki

:09:05.:09:08.

midway through the first set, the second was a dismantling. Caroline

:09:09.:09:11.

Wozniaki has been enjoying a renaissance recently and here she

:09:12.:09:16.

was taken back to the dark ages, chasing shadows. Johanna Konta was

:09:17.:09:21.

not hanging around, it took 75 minutes to complete her eighth

:09:22.:09:24.

straight victory, such was its style, such was its acclaim, well,

:09:25.:09:28.

they had to answer. What do you think issue British? But what do the

:09:29.:09:37.

Aussies think? That is an awkward conversation. It is an awkward

:09:38.:09:41.

conversation. Next up, Katarina Makarova, Johanna Konta will be
