Hundreds of thousands of people protest around the world against

:00:00.:00:07.

Build bridges, not walls! Build bridges, not walls!

:00:08.:00:15.

On the President's first full day, they marched across hundreds

:00:16.:00:18.

of cities, including London and Washington.

:00:19.:00:21.

I'm really glad there's a lot of people who are willing to come

:00:22.:00:24.

and stand up for these kinds of things.

:00:25.:00:26.

It's not that we hate Trump, but we hate what he stands for.

:00:27.:00:31.

Meanwhile, the new President's been building bridges

:00:32.:00:34.

with the intelligence agency he'd previously criticised.

:00:35.:00:38.

In Italy, rescuers still search for survivors at the hotel

:00:39.:00:41.

buried by an avalanche, after nine people were

:00:42.:00:45.

And in sport, Wayne Rooney takes his place in the history

:00:46.:00:50.

books as he becomes Manchester United's

:00:51.:00:52.

Hundreds of thousands of people joined protest marches

:00:53.:01:19.

today across the world to voice their concern

:01:20.:01:21.

over the new US President, Donald Trump.

:01:22.:01:24.

The aim was to highlight women's and minority rights,

:01:25.:01:27.

which protesters say are under threat from the new administration.

:01:28.:01:31.

Tens of thousands of people joined the rallies in London and other

:01:32.:01:34.

The biggest, though, was in Washington,

:01:35.:01:37.

Children, men and women, lots of women.

:01:38.:01:49.

I came from Hawaii to be here today and I'm here to represent

:01:50.:01:52.

It was a very dark day when the election results came in.

:01:53.:02:01.

It's not that we hate Trump but we hate what he stands for.

:02:02.:02:04.

And bigotry and racism, we're not going to stand for that.

:02:05.:02:08.

John Kerry came, too, no longer America's Secretary of State,

:02:09.:02:12.

now just a citizen taking a political stand.

:02:13.:02:18.

This march was conceived as a celebration of women and of one

:02:19.:02:21.

woman in particular, Hillary Clinton.

:02:22.:02:24.

But after the surprising American election, it

:02:25.:02:26.

quickly became a protest, and a protest against one man

:02:27.:02:29.

There were huge crowds in other American cities, too.

:02:30.:02:35.

In liberal bastions like Los Angeles, where

:02:36.:02:37.

And in Chicago, where the turnout was so big, they had

:02:38.:02:43.

In solidarity, they protested around the world.

:02:44.:02:49.

In London, a march that began on the doorstep of the American

:02:50.:02:53.

embassy was joined by 100,000 people, from the famous

:02:54.:02:57.

They marched also in Paris today and in Sydney.

:02:58.:03:02.

In Washington, the protest surpassed President Trump's inauguration

:03:03.:03:08.

crowd, a slap in the face to a man who cares about size.

:03:09.:03:15.

And it was about more than women's issues.

:03:16.:03:17.

This was a repudiation of the Trump worldview.

:03:18.:03:19.

Today marks the beginning, the beginning of our story.

:03:20.:03:26.

President Trump takes office as the most unpopular

:03:27.:03:34.

Today's march put faces to that fact.

:03:35.:03:42.

President Trump made an official visit to the CIA today as part

:03:43.:03:50.

of the first full day of his presidency.

:03:51.:03:53.

His relations with intelligence officials have been tense

:03:54.:03:56.

after he criticised their assessment that Russia had helped

:03:57.:03:58.

But speaking at the agency's headquarters, he said

:03:59.:04:03.

they were amazing people and had his backing

:04:04.:04:05.

Here's our North America correspondent James Cook.

:04:06.:04:11.

Before his inauguration, Donald Trump compared America's

:04:12.:04:15.

Now he's their boss and here at CIA headquarters,

:04:16.:04:20.

The reason you're my first stop is that, as you know,

:04:21.:04:26.

They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.

:04:27.:04:32.

And they sort of made it sound like I had a feud

:04:33.:04:45.

And I just want to let you know, the reason you're my number one

:04:46.:04:57.

But this was his own tweet, just over a week ago,

:04:58.:05:01.

accusing the intelligence agencies of spreading fake news,

:05:02.:05:03.

attacking them with the words, "Are we living in Nazi Germany?"

:05:04.:05:06.

It is impossible to reconcile the two Trumps.

:05:07.:05:09.

We're going to do great things. We're going to do great things.

:05:10.:05:13.

We've been fighting these wars for longer than any wars

:05:14.:05:16.

We have not used the real abilities that we have.

:05:17.:05:22.

We have to get rid of Isis. We have to get rid of Isis.

:05:23.:05:30.

The President also confirmed that he'd meet

:05:31.:05:33.

the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, very shortly.

:05:34.:05:35.

And in Myanmar, the Foreign Secretary said he was looking

:05:36.:05:38.

forward to doing business with the new US leader.

:05:39.:05:42.

The new President has made it very clear that he wants to put Britain

:05:43.:05:45.

at the front of the line for a new trade deal.

:05:46.:05:48.

Obviously, that's extremely exciting and important.

:05:49.:05:51.

But Germany's leader had what sounded like a coded warning

:05:52.:05:53.

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

:05:54.:06:00.

common values and joint actions in international economics,

:06:01.:06:02.

international trade and military alliances.

:06:03.:06:06.

As global leaders and citizens alike scramble to come to terms

:06:07.:06:11.

with the reality of the new Trump era, it is clear that the elevation

:06:12.:06:16.

to the most powerful position in the West of a controversial

:06:17.:06:18.

populist is having a big effect, not just here in the United States

:06:19.:06:21.

As President Trump was driven back to the White House tonight,

:06:22.:06:34.

protesters could be seen from the motorcade. And as he entered the

:06:35.:06:38.

building on his first full day in office, their shouts would have been

:06:39.:06:42.

ringing in his ears. It is tough being in charge. James Cook, BBC

:06:43.:06:44.

News, Washington. Our North America editor Jon Sopel

:06:45.:06:46.

is outside the White House. Let's turn to the protests.

:06:47.:06:54.

Yesterday belonged to the president. Did today belong to those who oppose

:06:55.:07:00.

him? You know, throughout the campaign, one statistic that Donald

:07:01.:07:03.

Trump loved to recite was how many thousands more people would come to

:07:04.:07:07.

his rallies than Hillary Clinton's. I think having seen today, it is

:07:08.:07:13.

clear that many, many more people were protesting against Donald Trump

:07:14.:07:16.

than came to his inauguration yesterday. That underlines just how

:07:17.:07:21.

divided this country remains after that bruising election. One bit of

:07:22.:07:25.

division that Donald Trump tried to put an end to today was the visit to

:07:26.:07:30.

CIA headquarters, the first visit he has made. No president has gone that

:07:31.:07:34.

quickly before but no president before has almost declared war on

:07:35.:07:37.

the agency in the run-up to him taking office. I thought it was

:07:38.:07:42.

significant, the word restrained, that he used. Does that mean he's

:07:43.:07:45.

going to try to rewrite the rule book for the CIA and how they can

:07:46.:07:49.

operate in the future? One other thing to talk about, it looks like

:07:50.:07:54.

Theresa May is going to be, if not the first foreign leader, among the

:07:55.:07:56.

first foreign leaders to visit Donald Trump in the White House. I'm

:07:57.:08:00.

sure Downing Street is delighted about that. That could happen as

:08:01.:08:03.

soon as this Thursday. Thank you for joining us.

:08:04.:08:04.

And Theresa May will be giving her reaction to Donald Trump's

:08:05.:08:07.

inauguration on the Andrew Marr Show tomorrow at 9am.

:08:08.:08:10.

Rescuers continued their search today for survivors,

:08:11.:08:12.

three days after an avalanche buried a hotel in central Italy.

:08:13.:08:16.

23 people are still thought to be missing.

:08:17.:08:18.

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

:08:19.:08:21.

alive from the rubble of the hotel in the Abruzzo region.

:08:22.:08:24.

For a third day in the mountains, rescuers pick through the remains

:08:25.:08:30.

They have to move carefully for fear of collapsing rubble on to anyone

:08:31.:08:37.

Around 30 people had been waiting in the lobby when the avalanche hit.

:08:38.:08:45.

Hotel worker, Fabio Salzetta, escaped the snowfall

:08:46.:08:47.

TRANSLATION: I don't think anyone expected an avalanche.

:08:48.:08:56.

There was lots of snow beforehand, we risked getting cut off.

:08:57.:09:00.

I kept trying to call to get us evacuated,

:09:01.:09:03.

Late at night, rescuers made it to four survivors,

:09:04.:09:11.

Earlier, relief workers pulled six-year-old

:09:12.:09:21.

She was the final member of her family to be rescued.

:09:22.:09:26.

Workers then carried away a boy who'd been with her.

:09:27.:09:29.

Concrete walls had protected them from the avalanche.

:09:30.:09:32.

The rescued adults and children have been flown to hospital

:09:33.:09:40.

in the coastal city of Pescara, where they're recovering quickly.

:09:41.:09:43.

The survivors' family members can now breathe again.

:09:44.:09:47.

TRANSLATION: Can't you see it from my face?

:09:48.:09:50.

Doesn't my face show how happy I am?

:09:51.:09:52.

It's great, I can't describe it in words.

:09:53.:09:54.

I'd like to see him. For now, the boy is safe.

:09:55.:09:59.

Fresh rescue teams have relieved their exhausted colleagues.

:10:00.:10:00.

They have plenty of work ahead of them.

:10:01.:10:05.

TRANSLATION: We're going to take over.

:10:06.:10:09.

The rescue operation will continue through the night.

:10:10.:10:12.

We're convinced that we'll find other people still alive.

:10:13.:10:16.

To find them, they'll have to dig through tonnes

:10:17.:10:19.

How many more survivors might there be underneath all this?

:10:20.:10:25.

Ukip's candidate for the upcoming by-election

:10:26.:10:33.

in Stoke-on-Trent Central will be the party's leader Paul Nuttall.

:10:34.:10:36.

The MEP took charge of Ukip in November.

:10:37.:10:39.

He'll now try to win the seat from Labour,

:10:40.:10:42.

whose previous MP Tristam Hunt stood down to become the head

:10:43.:10:45.

The Brazilian football club Chapecoense have played their first

:10:46.:10:53.

match since all but three of their senior players were killed

:10:54.:10:55.

In an emotional return home, the side met the current Brazilian

:10:56.:11:00.

Most of their players have been loaned by other Brazilian clubs,

:11:01.:11:06.

It's kick-off time for the new Chapecoense.

:11:07.:11:15.

The fans have crowded the Conda Arena to watch their comeback.

:11:16.:11:22.

With fresh new signings, the team is taking a big

:11:23.:11:25.

The flight carrying the Chapecoense squad

:11:26.:11:28.

crashed in the mountains, close to the city of

:11:29.:11:31.

Investigators in Columbia found it had run out of fuel.

:11:32.:11:36.

Defender Neto was the last person to be pulled from the wreckage.

:11:37.:11:39.

TRANSLATION: They told me the truth three days before

:11:40.:11:46.

I asked about my team-mates, and the doctors said

:11:47.:11:53.

Ahead of today's match, the families of the crash

:11:54.:11:59.

victims were given medals in the players' honour.

:12:00.:12:04.

The survivors received the Copa Sudamericana trophy,

:12:05.:12:05.

a tribute to the final they didn't get to play.

:12:06.:12:08.

It was an emotional moment for everyone.

:12:09.:12:11.

I feel very great because, I guess, this is the dream of my father,

:12:12.:12:15.

my father's dream, and I think we need to keep coming

:12:16.:12:22.

It's 71 minutes into the game and the match has stopped

:12:23.:12:29.

to remember the 71 victims of the crash.

:12:30.:12:33.

Instead of a minute of silence, a moment of sheer energy.

:12:34.:12:42.

The match is a draw, but the Chapecoense scored twice,

:12:43.:12:45.

filling fans with hope as the new team strives

:12:46.:12:47.

With all the sport, now, here's Hugh Woozencroft

:12:48.:12:53.

Yes, we start with football, and if you don't want to know

:12:54.:13:01.

what happened in today's matches in England or Scotland,

:13:02.:13:03.

it's time to make yourself scarce for a couple of minutes.

:13:04.:13:06.

Wayne Rooney has become Manchester United's

:13:07.:13:07.

His equaliser against Stoke City was his 250th for the club

:13:08.:13:13.

and takes him past the record of Sir Bobby Charlton.

:13:14.:13:15.

Rooney, hands on hips, to take a free kick. It is a day to remember

:13:16.:13:30.

for Wayne Rooney! England's record goal-scorer is now Manchester

:13:31.:13:35.

United's record goal-scorer! Wayne Rooney, Master of timing and

:13:36.:13:38.

placement, a goal worth a point and yet worth far more than that. In the

:13:39.:13:42.

grand scheme of things, it's a huge honour for me. Something I never

:13:43.:13:46.

expected when I joined the club. But I'm delighted and very proud. Rooney

:13:47.:13:53.

arrived at Old Trafford in 2004. ?27 million worth of teenage potential.

:13:54.:13:57.

He paid the first instalment back with a hat-trick on his debut and

:13:58.:14:01.

was united's top scorer in his first season. The passion that fuelled

:14:02.:14:04.

Rooney sometimes ignited in the early years but he became united's

:14:05.:14:12.

effervescent centre. Oh, that is absolutely fantastic! Capable of

:14:13.:14:15.

turning any game upside down. He was part of the side which won five

:14:16.:14:19.

Premier Leagues, the Champions League and the FA Cup and yet twice,

:14:20.:14:22.

he wanted to leave. Some questioned whether he really bled red. He's

:14:23.:14:29.

followed in past United royalty. Sir Bobby Charlton admitted today he is

:14:30.:14:32.

disappointed to lose the record but was delighted for the man he had

:14:33.:14:36.

handed it onto. Comparison between the two is tricky, because

:14:37.:14:39.

Charlton's goals came at a slower rate over a longer period of time

:14:40.:14:43.

but he was a midfielder and Rooney is a forward. Charlton's goals are

:14:44.:14:47.

written on the imagination. He was the man who survived the Munich air

:14:48.:14:51.

crash and led the club's recovery. Rooney may never achieve such rock

:14:52.:14:59.

rock-solid legendary status but that is above Wayne Rooney. Patrick

Geary, BBC News. And you can see that record-breaking
