Hundreds of thousands of people protest around the world against


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


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


of cities, including London and Washington.


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


and stand up for these kinds of things.


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


Meanwhile, the new President's been building bridges


with the intelligence agency he'd previously criticised.

Hundreds of thousands of people joined protest marches


today across the world to voice their concern


over the new US President, Donald Trump.


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


which protesters say are under threat from the new administration.


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


The biggest, though, was in Washington,


Children, men and women, lots of women.


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


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


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


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


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


now just a citizen taking a political stand.


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


woman in particular, Hillary Clinton.


But after the surprising American election, it


quickly became a protest, and a protest against one man


There were huge crowds in other American cities, too.


In liberal bastions like Los Angeles, where


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


In solidarity, they protested around the world.


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


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


They marched also in Paris today and in Sydney.


In Washington, the protest surpassed President Trump's inauguration


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


And it was about more than women's issues.


This was a repudiation of the Trump worldview.


Today marks the beginning, the beginning of our story.


President Trump takes office as the most unpopular


Today's march put faces to that fact.


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


of the first full day of his presidency.


His relations with intelligence officials have been tense


after he criticised their assessment that Russia had helped


But speaking at the agency's headquarters, he said


they were amazing people and had his backing


Here's our North America correspondent James Cook.


Before his inauguration, Donald Trump compared America's


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


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


They are among the most dishonest human beings on earth.


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


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


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


accusing the intelligence agencies of spreading fake news,


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


It is impossible to reconcile the two Trumps.


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


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


We have not used the real abilities that we have.

The President also confirmed that he'd meet


the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, very shortly.


And in Myanmar, the Foreign Secretary said he was looking


forward to doing business with the new US leader.


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


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


Obviously, that's extremely exciting and important.


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


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


common values and joint actions in international economics,


international trade and military alliances.


As global leaders and citizens alike scramble to come to terms


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


to the most powerful position in the West of a controversial


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


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


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


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


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


News, Washington. Our North America editor Jon Sopel


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


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


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


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


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


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


than came to his inauguration yesterday. That underlines just how


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


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


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


quickly before but no president before has almost declared war on


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


soon as this Thursday. Thank you for joining us.


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


inauguration on the Andrew Marr Show tomorrow at 9am.


Rescuers continued their search today for survivors,


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


23 people are still thought to be missing.


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


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


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


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


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


Hotel worker, Fabio Salzetta, escaped the snowfall


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


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


I kept trying to call to get us evacuated,


Late at night, rescuers made it to four survivors,


Earlier, relief workers pulled six-year-old


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


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


Concrete walls had protected them from the avalanche.


The rescued adults and children have been flown to hospital


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


The survivors' family members can now breathe again.


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


Doesn't my face show how happy I am?


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


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


Fresh rescue teams have relieved their exhausted colleagues.


They have plenty of work ahead of them.


TRANSLATION: We're going to take over.

How many more survivors might there be underneath all this?

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


It was an emotional moment for everyone.


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


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


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


to remember the 71 victims of the crash.


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

filling fans with hope as the new team strives


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


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


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


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


Wayne Rooney has become Manchester United's


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


and takes him past the record of Sir Bobby Charlton.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


goal from Wayne Rooney coming up on BBC1 on Match Of The Day,


along with the rest of the action Swansea lifted themselves off


the bottom of the table and dealt a blow to Liverpool's title hopes


with a 3-2 win at Anfield. Everton, West Ham and


West Brom also won. In Scotland, there were


no Premiership games Rangers came from behind to beat


Motherwell 2-1 and holders Hibernian scored eight against amateur side


Bonnyrigg Rose. All of the results are


on the BBC Sport website. British No 1 Johanna Konta


is through to the last 16 She beat the former World No


1 Caroline Wozniacki In the fourth round,


the No 9 seed will take And Glasgow Warriors are through to


the quarterfinals of rugby union's European Champions Cup


for the first time. They beat Leicester at Welford Road


48-0, putting six tries past the Tigers to secure their place


in the last eight. And that is all the sport for now.


Back to you. You can see more on all of today's


stories on the BBC News Channel. That's all from me.


Goodnight. Good evening. It is cold out there.


In fact, only a few minutes ago, it was as low as -7 across some rural


parts of southern England. Coldest way you can see starry skies and the


blanket of cloud means temperatures not so low. Dampness moving
