President Trump says he may rewrite his travel ban,
after his initial attempt to bar travellers from seven mainly Muslim
But he said he hasn't ruled out an appeal to the Supreme Court
It's unclear what his new immigration plan might look like.
After a federal appeals court backed a stay of his executive order,
Donald Trump vowed he would see his opponents in court.
Speaking on Air Force One, en route to his weekend retreat in Florida,
the President revealed he was actively weighing
We'll win that battle, but we also have a lot of other options,
including just filing a brand-new order on Monday.
We need speed for reasons of security, so it could very
Unveiled at the end of a frantic first week in office,
the original order suspended America's refugee programme
and banned travellers from seven majority Muslim nations
It caused chaos at airports and sparked protests
Quite how the White House might rewrite the order isn't clear,
although lawyers would almost certainly have to address the claim
that, in its existing form, the order is unconstitutional,
in that it blocks entry to the United States
Mr Trump has continued to insist that tough immigration
measures are crucial to America's national security.
Labour frontbenchers who defied Jeremy Corbyn in the Commons Brexit
vote will be sent a formal written warning over their behaviour
Mr Corbyn had ordered his MPs to vote to back Brexit.
But 52 Labour MPs rebelled in Wednesday's vote,
All rather unusual this? It is. Normally if a front bench MP votes
against a direct order from the party leadership one of two thing
happens, they resign or they are fired. For these 14 junior Labour
frontbenchers who voted against triggering Article 50, ignoring the
stringest possible order from their leadership, a three line whip, they
are getting off with nothing more than a formal warning. In the next
few days the 14 will get letters from the leadership team, insisting
simply they must comply with the whip in future. Three of those
rebels are themselves whips, means they face the potentially awkward
task of persuading colleagues over the next few weeks to obey rules
they themselves have just broken. By not firing these MPs, Jeremy Corbyn
has saved himself a potential human resources challenge, because in a
party where a significant number of MPs are refusing to work with the
leadership as part of their top team, his options for finding
replacements were potentially limited.
Thank you. Three Iraqis have been killed
after police forces protecting Baghdad's fortified Green Zone
fired at protesters The demonstrators, who had
gathered in their thousands in the heart of the capital,
were demanding electoral reform ahead of provincial
elections due in September. Thousands of British school children
are to be offered intensive lessons in cyber-security,
to encourage more teenagers to pursue a career in defending
the country from online attacks. It's hoped almost 6,000 pupils aged
14 and over will spend up to four hours a week
on the subject in a five-year pilot. Daniel Kelly's a convicted teenage
hacker, facing a jail sentence. In 2015, he took part
in the massive digital break-in But what if his potential had been
harnessed at an earlier age? He might have ended up joining
a new breed of apprentices learning the cyber security trade like these
at BT's headquarters. With that in mind, the government
is putting up ?20 million, for nearly 6000 schoolchildren aged
14 and above to take four hours of cyber security lessons
after school each week. We think that will help seriously
with this shortage Now, of course, will always
keep it under review, in case this needs to get bigger,
but getting it going on that scale, I think shows serious ambition
to make sure that we can have the pipeline of talent that we
will need in the years ahead. While the police are stepping up
the fight, this is not a threat which can be defeated on the ground
by raiding the hackers. The cyber crime battlefield will be
online and Britain's GCHQ 58,000 people are now employed in
the growing anti-hacking industry. But more will be needed
and the government knows it has to start finding them
when they are young. Volunteers in New Zealand say
a further 240 whales have become stranded on a beach
on the country's South Island. Hundreds have already died in one
of the biggest ever mass strandings It's hoped they'll be able to swim
to safety during the next high tide. You might find some
of the scenes in this report Doing whatever they can to help
before it's too late. These volunteers have been
working for many hours, trying to keep the whales cool
as they lie stranded. Some say singing also
helps to keep them calm, but what they really need
is high tide. Very quickly this tide has come
racing in, and now we're all up to our knees,
some people are up to their waists in water, and we're starting
to get a bit of floating, and we're just helping assist
the whales with their breathing until the water gets deep enough
they can swim. This is one of the worst whale
strandings in New Zealand's history. 400 whales came into
Farewell Spit on Thursday. Rescuers managed to refloat 100
of them, but they failed to stop Scientists don't know for sure
why beaching happens. The whales could simply
have become lost. One theory is that if a single
whale gets stuck, others But once it has happened,
it can lead to devastation. For those ones that restrand
there's very little chance they will ever swim away,
so we have to euthanise We do hope they coral their
resources and head back out to sea. It's very difficult to manage that
part of it, but dealing with the ones that are let
is quite an issue. Efforts are stood down
overnight for safety reasons, but the logistics of trying
to save these whales and then dealing with
the aftermath if they can't It's one of the biggest days
in the Six Nations calendar as Wales try to be the team,
to give Eddie Jones a first Our correspondent Joe Wilson
is at the Principality Where do you think this game will be
won or lost? Well, good question, we spent so much of this week looking
for clues in history, England's superior record in Cardiff when the
roof is open, Wales' victory in 2013, 30 points against an English
team buoyant then. What will be key is whether England's players can
cope with the atmosphere, even with the lid off it will be a cauldron.
Wales have experience where ever you look. Both teams will be desperate
to be more urgent from the start than in their opening weekend. That
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.
I am sure the men's will be closer. Thank you.
The early Premier League kick off is already underway at the Emirates.
Arsenal are taking on a re-juvenated Hull City.
Sanchez has put Arsenal ahead. Just after the half hour mark. Have
another look because the replay show that is an Chez, he bundled it in
with his hand, although whether he meant it or not is another question.
Arsenal are in fourth but have lost the last two matches.
If I am going to be honest, I get the impression
I genuinely believe, you know - I was with him for a few hours last
He didn't say I'm leaving at the end of the season,
but I get the impression, looking at him, that's it.
He mentioned when we were talking last night that
This week marked one year to go until the Winter Olympics,
They achieved a record-equalling four medals in Sochi three years
ago, but that figure could yet increase as inevstigations
The GB bobsleigh team may be upgraded to bronze,
but have remained quiet on the issue, until now.
They've spoken exclusively to our Olympic reporter Nick Hope.
The British four-man team delivered an impressive fifth place in 2014
but could they have been celebrating greater success? Russia finished
first and fourth but the host nation's result have been
discredited with the damning report alleging over 1,000 Russian athletes
benefitted from a state sponsored doping programme. For me it's the
biggest sporting scandal of my lifetime. I think it is huge. Do you
feel like you are the bronze medallist? I suppose I kind of do.
We were that close and we know that we competed clean. Clean. If I had a
bronze medal it would be nice, the moment has gone, it is nearly four
years ago, looking at the next one, its would be a nice but not the
occasion it would have been. If it is changed who would that mean? The
truth would be more important to me than receiving the medal itself. The
International Olympic Committee are investigating the findings of the
report, so no-one knows what will happen to the results from Sochi
2014. What we know is that the city won't be hosting this year's
skeleton and bobsleigh World Championship. They were stripped of
that event. It will happen in Germany from next week. That is
something the GB athletes are in favour of Until things are properly
investigated I don't think it was safe to Sochi from a sporting
perspective. We are required to provide whereabouts for where we are
and provide samples at a moment's notice, it is safer being done in a
country that we can trust at the moment. I don't think that country
right now is Russia. Those stripped of the right Russia
will compete in Germany next week, with the team hoping to challenge
for a medal on the day rather than several years later.

here, because outside it may look on the pretty side for some but for
many it is grey and damp. One exception is the
