A showdown at the Munich

Security Conference,

0:00:250:00:27

and threats.

0:00:270:00:29

To the tyrants of Tehran -

do not test Israel's resolve.

0:00:290:00:32

Iran will respond, we will respond

seriously, and I believe it would be

0:00:320:00:38

a response that people

will be sorry.

I am Jane Hill at the Royal Albert

Hall in London where that ceremony

0:01:040:01:08

is continuing. Join me in half an

hour for a special programme with

0:01:080:01:11

all the winners.

0:01:110:01:16

Hello and welcome

to World News Today.

0:01:220:01:25

A group of American teenagers

who survived a school shooting

0:01:260:01:30

in Florida on Wednesday have

announced a national march

0:01:300:01:33

on Washington to demand political

action on gun control.

0:01:330:01:36

They say they're determined

that the mass shooting,

0:01:360:01:40

in which 14 pupils and three staff

members were killed,

0:01:400:01:43

will be a turning point

in the national debate on guns.

0:01:430:01:47

Organisers say they want to shame

politicians who take contributions

0:01:470:01:49

from the pro-gun lobby,

the National Rifle Association.

0:01:490:01:52

A former pupil, 19-year-old

Nikolas Cruz, has admitted carrying

0:01:520:01:54

out Wednesday's attack,

using a semi automatic rifle

0:01:540:01:56

he purchased legally.

0:01:560:02:00

David Willis is in Washington.

0:02:000:02:06

What is the message these students

want to bring to America's leaders?

0:02:060:02:12

It is interesting, because after

this Florida shooting, it seemed the

0:02:120:02:16

national debate might follow the

sort of conventional pattern that

0:02:160:02:19

has followed in the past. You know,

outrage, followed by calls for

0:02:190:02:25

action, followed by precisely

nothing. But now we have these

0:02:250:02:29

students calling for some sort of

action. These are people who, of

0:02:290:02:35

course, to remember the Columbine

massacre back in 1999. They weren't

0:02:350:02:39

born at that particular time, but

unlike Columbine, which had outrage

0:02:390:02:48

but not activism following it, these

people are calling for a change and

0:02:480:02:53

they have come up with various ways

of bringing fact about, including

0:02:530:02:59

this scheme to hold a march on the

capital, Washington, DC, next month.

0:02:590:03:04

That is going to be called the March

for lives. Separately, they are

0:03:040:03:11

planning a school walk out on the

20th of April, that marks the 19th

0:03:110:03:18

anniversary of the Columbine

massacre. And there is a big rally

0:03:180:03:20

planned for Wednesday in the Florida

capital, Tallahassee. All basically

0:03:200:03:27

to advance the cause for tighter gun

control laws here in America.

0:03:270:03:34

What do opinion polls show lately

over the divide in America over the

0:03:340:03:39

issue of gun control?

Well they

appear to show there is a majority

0:03:390:03:43

in favour of some sort of tightening

of the gun control laws here. But

0:03:430:03:49

that said, President Trump, who got

the early backing of the National

0:03:490:03:54

Rifle Association, thought to have

donated about $30 million to his

0:03:540:04:00

cause, has said quite emphatically

that he would never infringe on the

0:04:000:04:05

right to bear arms. Indeed, in a

tweet to date he blamed the

0:04:050:04:08

Democrats for failing to press

tougher gun control laws when they

0:04:080:04:14

had control of Congress in the early

days of Barack Obama. But the

0:04:140:04:19

president is to meet with high

school students this week, listening

0:04:190:04:23

session the White House is. It will

be interesting to see what comes out

0:04:230:04:27

of that.

David Willetts in

Washington, thank you.

0:04:270:04:31

Israel's Prime Minister has

warned that he is ready

0:04:310:04:33

to act against Iran,

calling it greatest threat

0:04:330:04:35

to his nation and the world.

0:04:350:04:42

Benjamin Netanyahu made his remarks

at an International Security

0:04:420:04:44

Conference in Munich,

a week after the first known direct

0:04:440:04:46

military engagement between them.

0:04:460:04:47

Israel shot down an Iranian stealth

drone that entered its airspace

0:04:470:04:50

from Syria, and then bombed

the Iranian vehicle that

0:04:500:04:52

controlled the drone.

0:04:520:04:53

Mr Netanyahu warned Iran not

to test Israeli resolve.

0:04:530:04:56

Here's a piece of that Iranian

drone, or what's left of it after we

0:04:580:05:01

shot it down.

0:05:010:05:05

I brought it here so you could

see it for yourself.

0:05:050:05:08

Mr Zarif, do you recognise this?

0:05:080:05:13

You should - it's yours.

0:05:130:05:17

You can take back with

you a message to the

0:05:170:05:19

tyrants of Tehran -

do not test Israel's resolve.

0:05:190:05:26

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad

Javad Zarif mentioned there,

0:05:260:05:29

said Mr Netanyahu's speech

was an attempt to undermine

0:05:290:05:34

the landmark nuclear deal in 2015

between his country and several

0:05:340:05:37

global powers.

0:05:370:05:39

I can assure you that

if Iran's interests are not

0:05:390:05:43

secured, Iran will respond.

0:05:430:05:48

We'll respond seriously

and I believe it would be a response

0:05:480:05:52

that people will be sorry for taking

the erroneous actions they did.

0:05:520:05:56

We will not be the first ones

to violate an agreement

0:05:560:06:03

for which all of us tried,

in spite of Netanyahu's

0:06:030:06:05

attempts, to achieve.

0:06:050:06:09

We achieved it in spite of him,

we implemented it in spite of him,

0:06:090:06:13

and the world will maintain that

agreement, in spite of his

0:06:130:06:17

delusional attempts.

0:06:170:06:19

Earlier, I asked Kasra Naji,

of BBC Persian, how real

0:06:190:06:22

was the tension between Israel

and Iran?

0:06:220:06:24

It's very real, actually.

0:06:240:06:28

And what we've seen in the last

three days in this conference,

0:06:280:06:31

in this hotel behind me...

0:06:310:06:32

In fact, a lot of people who did

speak, some of the leaders

0:06:320:06:36

of the countries, top officials,

strategists who spoke,

0:06:360:06:41

they spoke about the real danger

of a conflict breaking out in that

0:06:410:06:45

region, particularly

because of the worrying

0:06:450:06:50

developments in Syria.

0:06:500:06:52

There are people here who believe

Syria today poses the greatest

0:06:520:06:56

threat to world peace,

in effect, and what has happened

0:06:560:07:03

eight days ago between Iran

and Israel lends itself to that,

0:07:030:07:09

in a sense that when that Iranian

drone went over into Israel

0:07:090:07:16

and the consequent actions

of the Israeli air force has raised

0:07:160:07:18

the tension to a new level.

0:07:180:07:22

Tension between Iran and Israel.

0:07:220:07:23

At the opening of this

conference three days ago,

0:07:230:07:28

we had the General Secretary

of the UN, who said tension between,

0:07:280:07:31

on the border of Lebanon and Israel

is also very, very high.

0:07:310:07:37

But he was of the opinion that

neither Iran nor Hezbollah

0:07:370:07:45

in southern Lebanon nor Israel

want to see a conflict breaking out,

0:07:450:07:49

a war breaking out.

0:07:500:07:54

Although here this morning,

there were talks of the possibility

0:07:540:07:58

of a full-scale war breaking out

here if they don't watch it.

0:07:580:08:02

Kasra, we believe that incident,

that drone incident you mentioned

0:08:020:08:06

eight days ago, that was the first

direct military confrontation that

0:08:060:08:09

we've seen between the two.

0:08:090:08:12

That's right.

0:08:120:08:13

That was the first one, direct one,

for a very long time.

0:08:130:08:19

I don't remember it,

I mean the last time we had

0:08:190:08:22

Hezbollah in southern Lebanon

getting into conflict.

0:08:220:08:25

But it shows how the situation

in Syria is leading to all sorts

0:08:250:08:31

of problems that is very dangerous

and increases the real danger

0:08:310:08:37

of an outbreak of conflict.

0:08:370:08:43

Let's take a look at some

of the other stories

0:08:440:08:47

making the news...

0:08:470:08:50

A fire has hit the most important

shrine in Tibetan Buddhism. Footage

0:08:500:08:56

posted online showed flames

billowing from the ancient

0:08:560:08:59

compounds. Chinese state media has

given few details but insisted the

0:08:590:09:05

blaze was quickly put out and no

relics harmed. It is more than 1300

0:09:050:09:08

years old.

0:09:080:09:10

A Russian athlete is suspected

of failing a doping test

0:09:100:09:12

at the Winter Olympics in South

Korea.

0:09:120:09:14

The athlete hasn't be officially

named but some Russian media outlets

0:09:140:09:17

suggest the curling bronze medallist

Alexander Krushelnitsky.

0:09:170:09:22

Russia is banned from the Games

for doping but individual Russian

0:09:220:09:25

athletes can compete under a neutral

banner.

0:09:250:09:27

Latvia's finance minister has called

on the country's central bank

0:09:270:09:29

governor to step aside,

after he was detained

0:09:290:09:31

by the anti-corruption

agency on Saturday.

0:09:310:09:36

Ilmars Rimsevics has been head

of the bank since 2001 and is also

0:09:360:09:39

a member of the European Central

Bank.

0:09:390:09:41

The Government has not said why

the governor was detained.

0:09:410:09:45

A memorial service for Zimbabwe's

opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai

0:09:460:09:52

has been held in the capital Harare,

four days after he died from cancer.

0:09:520:09:56

Politicians from across

the political divide gathered

0:09:560:09:59

at the church to pay tribute

to Mr Tsvangirai, alongside hundreds

0:09:590:10:02

of supporters wearing the red

colours of the Movement

0:10:020:10:04

for Democratic Change.

0:10:050:10:07

His body was flown back

from South Africa, where he'd been

0:10:070:10:09

receiving treatment.

0:10:090:10:15

Our correspondent has been watching

events in Harare.

0:10:150:10:18

On this overcast day,

hundreds of opposition supporters,

0:10:180:10:22

leaders from across the political

divide, as well as diplomats

0:10:220:10:24

and representatives from some

African countries, have gathered

0:10:240:10:28

here to bid farewell

to Morgan Tsvangirai.

0:10:280:10:30

The speakers that were in this

church service remembered his

0:10:300:10:36

contribution to democracy

in this country.

0:10:360:10:37

They say that he is an icon

who should be honoured,

0:10:370:10:40

but there's also been reference

to the fact that in his death,

0:10:400:10:43

his supporters should now

the night behind one leader.

0:10:430:10:51

-- should now unite behind one

leader.

0:10:510:10:55

You'll know that thre have been

disputes over who the rightful

0:10:550:10:57

successor is to Morgan Tsvangirai

amongst the three vice presidents.

0:10:570:11:00

So the speakers are saying

they should use his death to unite.

0:11:000:11:02

Shingai Nyoka, BBC News, Harare.

0:11:030:11:07

Rescue teams in western Iran

searching for a passenger plane that

0:11:070:11:10

disappeared with more than 60 people

on board have called off their

0:11:100:11:15

search for the night because of

heavy snow. Families have been

0:11:150:11:18

gathering at a mosque close to the

airport to get information about

0:11:180:11:21

their loved ones. It is feared there

are no survivors. The plane went

0:11:210:11:24

down in the mountains during a

flight from the capital Tehran to

0:11:240:11:29

the south-western city.

According to

Iranian state TV, they have called

0:11:290:11:38

off the rescue operation. It is

night there, very cold. The weather

0:11:380:11:43

conditions are very severe. The

teams that tried earlier on to go to

0:11:430:11:48

the crash site were unable to do so

and they were sent back halfway

0:11:480:11:53

through, because the blizzard is so

severe that they couldn't reach

0:11:530:11:57

anywhere near the crash site.

And

all the while the relatives were

0:11:570:12:02

told first of all everyone had been

killed and then they said, we are

0:12:020:12:05

not so sure. This must be absolute

torment for them.

It is, and

0:12:050:12:11

unfortunately the whole messy

process of giving information is

0:12:110:12:15

going on, there is no exact

knowledge of the number of people

0:12:150:12:18

who were on board. The figure

bandied about over 65 or 66. That

0:12:180:12:25

has added to the misery of these

relatives who are waiting. Some even

0:12:250:12:30

tried to take the initiative of

going up themselves, and then of

0:12:300:12:34

course they were stopped by the

officials because they were

0:12:340:12:37

endangering their own health. They

will probably have a very difficult

0:12:370:12:42

night, waiting until tomorrow

morning to find out what has

0:12:420:12:45

happened.

More widely, what is the

Iranian air safety record like? The

0:12:450:12:52

difficulties over recent years of

maintaining error plays under

0:12:520:12:55

sanctions must have been

considerable?

Obviously yes, because

0:12:550:12:59

of sanctions there is a very ageing

fleet in Iran. This particular plane

0:12:590:13:07

was 25 years old, but there's also a

question of mismanagement in cases

0:13:070:13:12

like this. A lot of air crashes are

due to human error, pilot error, and

0:13:120:13:17

some of them to do with weather

conditions, but also there is a

0:13:170:13:22

sizeable number of them which

because of technical problems. When

0:13:220:13:26

you have an ageing fleet by Iran

has, that hasn't been updated, you

0:13:260:13:30

haven't been able to purchase new

planes, that risk goes higher and

0:13:300:13:33

higher.

0:13:330:13:34

Stay with us on BBC

World News, still to come...

0:13:340:13:39

We will have the latest from the

Winter Olympics. The Austrian skier

0:13:390:13:47

Marcel Hirscher has taken another

gold.

0:13:470:13:52

Nine years and 15,000 deaths after

going into Afghanistan, the last

0:13:560:13:59

Soviet troops were finally coming

home. The withdrawal completed in

0:13:590:14:04

good order but the army defeated in

the task it was sent to perform.

0:14:040:14:11

Malcolm was murdered and had a

terrible effect on the morale of the

0:14:110:14:14

people, terrible repercussions in

the streets.

0:14:140:14:19

As the airlift got underway, there

was no let up in the eruption

0:14:300:14:34

itself. Lava streams from lower in

the greater flow down to DC on the

0:14:340:14:39

east of the island, away from the

town for the time being, but it

0:14:390:14:42

could start flowing again at time.

The Russians heralded their new

0:14:420:14:47

generation space station with a

spectacular night-time launch.

0:14:470:14:51

This is BBC World News Today,

The latest headlines:

0:15:010:15:04

Survivors of the latest school

shooting in the United States are

0:15:040:15:08

organising a march on the national

capital to press for action on gun

0:15:080:15:12

control.

Israel's Prime Minister says Iran is

0:15:120:15:16

the world's greatest threat. It

responds by Coldingham Benjamin

Netanyahu delusional. -- by calling

Benjamin Netanyahu delusional.

0:15:200:15:29

More now from the Munich

Security Conference.

0:15:290:15:31

As well as discussing tensions

in the Middle East he event has also

0:15:310:15:34

reminded the world about the ongoing

conflict in Ukraine.

0:15:340:15:36

A report has described the situation

in Ukraine as 'a stumbling block

0:15:360:15:39

in the path to better relations'

between Russia and the West.

0:15:390:15:42

A reminder of some of the key

points in that conflict.

0:15:420:15:44

Nearly four years ago,

Russia annexes the southern

0:15:450:15:47

Ukrainian region of Crimea.

0:15:470:15:48

It follows a controversial

referendum on its status.

0:15:480:15:50

Moscow's actions are

roundly criticised by

0:15:500:15:51

the international community.

0:15:510:15:54

By April 2014, heavy fighting

is well underway in eastern Ukraine

0:15:540:15:59

between pro-Russian separatists

and the Ukrainian army.

0:15:590:16:04

Kiev insists some of the pro-Russian

fighters are actually Russian

0:16:040:16:07

nationals, specifically sent

over the border.

0:16:070:16:12

By July 2014, matters escalate

sharply, after Malaysia Airlines

0:16:120:16:15

flight MH17 is blown out of the sky

by a surface to air missile fired

0:16:150:16:18

in rebel held territory.

0:16:180:16:19

Initially, pro-Russian rebels

prevent a proper investigation.

0:16:190:16:23

After various failed ceasefire

attempts, EU foreign ministers

0:16:230:16:28

extend sanctions against Russia

in June 2015, much to the ire

0:16:280:16:30

of President Putin.

0:16:300:16:33

Renewed hostilities in the summer

of 2016 see a sharp spike

0:16:330:16:35

in civilian casualties,

that's according to the UN

0:16:350:16:40

High Commissioner for Human Rights.

0:16:400:16:43

As President Trump assumes power,

Nikki Haley, America's Ambassador

0:16:430:16:47

to the UN, condemns Russia's

aggressive actions in Ukraine.

0:16:470:16:49

Fighting continues with no sign

of a political breakthrough.

0:16:490:16:57

Let's speak to the Global Affairs

Analyst, Michael Bociurkiw.

0:16:570:16:59

He formerly worked for the OSCE -

the Organization for Security

0:16:590:17:02

and Cooperation in Europe -

as spokesman for its Special

0:17:020:17:04

Monitoring Mission to Ukraine.

0:17:040:17:10

Welcome. How far from any kind of

resolution is the situation in

0:17:100:17:14

Ukraine?

They are talking about a

peacekeeping mission coming to

0:17:140:17:20

Ukraine, 28,000 troops, but there is

no peace in Ukraine. 10,000 people

0:17:200:17:23

have died. The daily explosions

going to the thousands on Sundays.

0:17:230:17:27

There is a lot of displacement of

people. It is a very violent scene.

0:17:270:17:31

By now we would have thought that

some of those steps would have been

0:17:310:17:37

applied. The main one is the

withdrawal of heavy weapons. Read

0:17:370:17:41

any ONC report and you will see

every weapons along the contact

0:17:410:17:47

line. How do we treat peace when the

Russians haven't admitted they are

0:17:470:17:53

party to the conflict?

And they keep

denying they are. Given what you

0:17:530:17:57

say, the severity of the fighting

still, it seems remarkable the

0:17:570:18:00

situation seems to keep slipping

from the world's consciousness.

It

0:18:000:18:05

does. I think the reason is there is

so much happening around the world,

0:18:050:18:09

like Yemen and Correa. Another

reason I think is foreign

0:18:090:18:15

journalists, including your own BBC

correspondent in Kiev, isn't able to

0:18:150:18:19

go across the contact Linux or near

it to report what's going on. In

0:18:190:18:24

today's world without images and

interviews, it is very difficult to

0:18:240:18:26

get a grip on things right in the

middle of the conflict zone.

We have

0:18:260:18:30

talked about before the toll it's

taken on the civilians living in the

0:18:300:18:37

middle of all this.

It is an urban

warfare type of situation. The

0:18:370:18:41

casualties are very high because the

sides are firing into very densely

0:18:410:18:45

populated areas. Another big setback

is the Ukrainian mobile phone

0:18:450:18:50

services have been cut off in the

conflict zone and the rebel side has

0:18:500:18:54

introduced their own Russian

service. For example, now people

0:18:540:18:58

can't even get notifications of

social payments from the Ukrainian

0:18:580:19:03

side, very tough on them stopped by

one of the defining moments and most

0:19:030:19:06

appalling tragedies over the years

of this conflict with the downing of

0:19:060:19:10

that passenger jet, MH17. You were

among the first on the actual crash

0:19:100:19:15

site. You are heavily involved in

the aftermath. Is the situation any

0:19:150:19:20

nearer to getting any kind of

justice?

0:19:200:19:25

The investigation team has done

incredible work in terms of

0:19:250:19:28

identifying what has happened, they

identified about 100 people of

0:19:280:19:32

interest. The next step will be to

name them and to bring them to

0:19:320:19:36

justice. I spoke to families today

here in the United Kingdom and the

0:19:360:19:41

Netherlands. They used the word

impatient because they want the

0:19:410:19:45

trial to go ahead in the

Netherlands. The problem is, it very

0:19:450:19:49

unlikely because most of the

suspects are Russian, very unlikely

0:19:490:19:54

Russia will extradite them for

trial.

Remind us of the conclusion

0:19:540:19:58

of the investigators?

A missile

brought it down. They found that it

0:19:580:20:11

was a missile that came from the

Russian side of the border into

0:20:110:20:14

Ukraine, it went up with devastating

consequences.

Do you see anything

0:20:140:20:20

changing in the situation in eastern

Ukraine in 2018 or will it maintain

0:20:200:20:25

this awful stalemate?

It is looking very, very bad at the

0:20:250:20:29

moment. The peacekeeping force could

be good but I think as the American

0:20:290:20:34

representative said, the rebels have

to withdraw. There has to be peace

0:20:340:20:37

and then a peacekeeping mission can

come in to make this transition

0:20:370:20:40

happen, to make elections happen and

things like that. At the moment, the

0:20:400:20:44

violence is so intense right now

that there is a very, very little

0:20:440:20:48

hope it could end any time soon.

Michael, thank you very much for

0:20:480:20:51

coming in.

0:20:510:20:53

We are going to turn to all the

sports development now.

0:20:540:21:00

Thank you. The Winter Olympics is

where we start.

0:21:000:21:03

Austria's Marcel Hirscher won

a second Olympic gold medal

0:21:030:21:05

with victory in the men's giant

slalom on Sunday.

0:21:050:21:12

He's been a dominant figure

on the World Cup skiing circuit

0:21:120:21:15

but before Pyeonchang his best

Olympic result was

0:21:150:21:16

slalom silver in 2014.

0:21:160:21:17

Nick Marshall McCormack

rounds up the action.

0:21:170:21:22

His trademark start is brilliant,

powerful, and just listen to the

0:21:220:21:27

sweet sound of him carving his way

down the mountain. Marcel Hirscher

0:21:270:21:31

already had 55 World Cup wins before

today but his two gold medals here

0:21:310:21:36

strengthen his claim to be regarded

as the best male ski racer of all

0:21:360:21:41

time. The 28 rolled won by 1.27

seconds from the Norwegian. The

0:21:410:21:47

bronze went to France. Norway struck

early with a brilliant first run,

0:21:470:21:55

claiming gold in the freestyle men's

slopestyle. The American took silver

0:21:550:22:00

and Canada claims surprise their

place. Less than half a point

0:22:000:22:11

between the Ukrainian and China.

0:22:110:22:16

Roger Federer has called this "one

of the best weeks of my life"

0:22:200:22:26

after winning the Rotterdam Open

and reistating himself as World

0:22:260:22:28

number one for the first

time since 2012.

0:22:280:22:32

The 36-year-old, is now

the oldest Number one

0:22:320:22:34

in history and he thrashed

Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov 6-2,

0:22:340:22:40

6-2 in a one-sided final that

lasted less than an hour.

0:22:400:22:42

This was Federer's 97th career title

and in the Open era,

0:22:420:22:45

only American Jimmy Connors has won

more with 109.

0:22:450:22:50

It's been unbelievable. I can't

believe it. My 97th title, back to

0:22:500:22:56

world number one after all these

years. It's definitely one of those

0:22:560:22:59

weeks I will never forget in my

life. Very, very special.

To

0:22:590:23:03

football...

0:23:030:23:08

Tottenham

were stunned by a late goal

0:23:080:23:10

from Rochdale who are bottom

of the third tier in England.

0:23:100:23:13

The last 16 tie finished 2-2

meaning they'll have

0:23:130:23:15

to replay at Wembley Stadium.

0:23:150:23:16

Harry Kane looked to have won it

with a penalty two minutes

0:23:160:23:20

from the end but Steve Davies'

dramatic injury-time equaliser

0:23:200:23:22

forced the tie to a replay

with the winner to face either

0:23:220:23:25

Swansea City or Sheffield Wednesday

in the quarter finals.

0:23:250:23:31

I know very well what happens if

you, if you believe that this tie

0:23:310:23:38

was winning and that happened,

because it was tight and I think we

0:23:380:23:48

conceded two clear chances.

0:23:480:23:52

Gareth Bale started up front

with Cristiano Ronaldo

0:23:520:23:54

for Real Madrid in their clash

at Real Betis as they look to stay

0:23:540:23:58

in touch with runaway leaders

Barcelona in the Spanish Primera

0:23:580:24:00

Division.

0:24:000:24:01

The reigning champions

are currently fourth,

0:24:010:24:03

20 points behind Barca

going into this match

0:24:030:24:03

They are currently 4-2 up with about

12 minutes remaining. Dabo from

0:24:080:24:14

Asensio. Cristiano Ronaldo also

picking up a goal. Second placed

0:24:140:24:17

Atletico Madrid won against Athletic

Bilbao.

0:24:170:24:25

England beat New Zealand

in their final match

0:24:250:24:27

of the triangular Twenty 20 Series

but failed to qualify

0:24:270:24:29

for the final against Australia.

0:24:290:24:30

The Black Caps go through with

a better overall run-rate.

0:24:300:24:33

Darvid Malan's half century

and Captain Eoin Morgan's unbeaten

0:24:330:24:35

80 took them to 194 for seven

but New Zealand knew reaching 175

0:24:350:24:38

would ensure their run rate was good

enough but they fell two runs short

0:24:380:24:41

of winning the match.

0:24:410:24:47

That is your sport for now.

Thank you very much. We will see you

0:24:500:24:56

later. Let's bring you up to date

with what we're hearing from the

0:24:560:24:59

BAFTA awards, underway in London.

The past few minutes, Francis

0:24:590:25:05

McDormand has won Best actress for

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,

0:25:050:25:08

Missouri. That has just won best

film and Gary Oldman has taken the

0:25:080:25:13

lead actor BAFTA for his film

betrayal of Winston Churchill in

0:25:130:25:18

Darkest Hour. Like other award shows

this season, the stars were asked to

0:25:180:25:24

wear black. There was plenty of

speculation about whether one of the

0:25:240:25:29

guests, the Duchess of Cambridge

might go along with that, but as you

0:25:290:25:33

can see, she opted for a green dress

with a black ribbon. Many other act

0:25:330:25:38

But many other actresses, including

Lupita Nyong'o and Angelina Jolie,

0:25:420:25:44

chose to wear black to show support

for the Time's Up movement,

0:25:440:25:47

which is campaigning for an end

to sexism and Inequality.

0:25:470:25:50

for all of this year's winners, join

us for our BAFTA special coming up

0:25:500:25:53

here on BBC News in a few moments

time.
