this is bbc news. i'm martine croxhall. the headlines at 10.00pm: organisers in washington say half a million people havejoined a protest led by women against the new trump administration — hundreds of rallies have been held worldwide. there is nobody that feels stronger about the intelligence community and the cia than donald trump. president trump visited the cia and told officials he backs them 1000%. the former leader of the gambia, yahya jammeh, flies out of the country, ending weeks of political crisis. and nine people have now been rescued from the italian hotel which was buried by an avalanche three days ago — 23 people are still missing. good evening and welcome to bbc news.
10:01 pm
hundreds of thousands of people havejoined protest marches around the world, on this the first full day of donald trump's presidency. the demonstrations are to highlight women's and minority rights, which protesters say are under threat from the new administration. tens of thousands of people joined the rally in london and other cities across the uk, but the biggest event was in washington. harmony of the seas officials say an estimated half a million people were on the streets —— estimated half a million people were on the streets -- officials say an estimated half a million people were there. from there, james cook reports. washington has a long history of public protest, but even judged by those standards, this march is massive. hundreds of thousands of women and many men as well
10:02 pm
poured into the capital to make their voices heard. i came from hawaii to be here today and i'm here to represent all the people that cannot be here. i'm glad there is a lot of people who are willing to come and stand up for these things. i feel like it's important. it's not that we hate trump but we hate what he stands for. bigotry and racism, we will not stand for that. it gives me hope for our future. it was a really dark day when the election results came in and seeing this gives me hope that we will move forward for the better. it is clear from the scale of this march that president trump faces an enormous and perhaps impossible challenge, convincing these women and many more like them around the country that he governs for all america. he will need more than prayer to unite the nation. but mr trump and vice president mike pence started their first full day in office at church with theirfamilies. # and more, much more than this...# but the new president shows no sign of compromising with his opponents, as his choice of music at this inaugural ball hinted. # i did it my way #. even as they danced,
10:03 pm
plans to repeal president obama's health—care plan were already underway. we want to see great things happen for our country. we want to make america a great again and we will. politicians around the world are now adjusting to the new era, britain's foreign secretary give his reaction in myanmar. britain's foreign secretary gave his reaction in myanmar. the new president has made it very clear that he wants to put britain at the front of line for a new trade deal and that is extremely exciting and important. but germany's leader had what sounded like a coded warning for president trump. translation: i believe it is best if we work together based on rule of common values and joint actions on international trade and military alliances. there was less subtlety on the streets — these were the scenes in london at an anti—trump demonstration. they were reflected here in the kenyan capital, nairobi, in the australian city of sydney, and in many other places.
10:04 pm
the elevation of a controversial populist to the most powerful office in the west has shaken the entire world. that was james cook reporting. president trump's first official visit was to the cia where he denied claims he has a feud with the intelligence community. his relations with the agency have been strained since he criticised officials when they concluded that russia had interfered in the presidential election. but mr trump told employees at the agency's headquarters in fairfax in virginia that he stands with them "one
10:05 pm
thousand percent", and he promised to defeat so—called islamic state. we have to get rid of isis, we have to get rid of isis. we have no choice. applause radical islamic terrorism, and i said yesterday — it has to be eradicated. just off the face of the earth. this is evil. mr trump also accused the media of dishonesty reporting that there were empty spaces on the national mall at his inauguration yesterday. the reason you're my first stop is that, as you know, i have a running war with the media. they are among the most dishonest human beings on earth. applause right? and they sort of made it sound like i had a feud with the intelligence community. and ijust want to let you know the reason you are the number one stop, it is exactly the opposite, exactly the opposite. they understand that too. i was explaining about the numbers. we did a thing yesterday — the speech yesterday — did everybody like the speech? applause you had to like it. but we had a massive field of people. you saw it, packed. i get up this morning and turn on one of the networks and they show an empty field.
10:06 pm
i said, wait a minute — i made a speech. i looked out, the field was... it looked like a million, or a million and a half people. they showed a field where there was practically nobody standing there! speaking there at the cia. during the speech, mr trump also confirmed that the british prime minister theresa may is to travel to washington to meet him — in his words, "very shortly". the bbc understands it's this week. a trade deal between the uk and the us is likely to be high on mrs may's agenda. mr trump said recently he'd be keen to work on a deal that was good for both countries but also said during his inaugural address that in relations with other countries, he'd always put america first. in the last hour gambia's defeated president yahya jammeh has flown out of the country and into exile. the former president boarded a private plane in the capital banjul — shown here in a photo tweeted
10:07 pm
by the new president, adama barrow. jammeh will travel to guinea where it's believed he will stay before going on to another country. president barrow, who was inaugurated in senegal this week, says he will return to gambia as early as possible. ukip leader paul nuttall has been confirmed as the party's candidate to fight next month's by—election in stoke—on—trent central. it was triggered by the resignation of leading labour moderate tristram hunt. ukip has high hopes of winning the seat, after more than two—thirds of voters there backed brexit in the eu referendum. our correspondent matt cole says paul nuttall believes this is his chance to get into parliament. it is very clear by becoming the candidate for stoke central that paul nuttall thinks he's got a chance. you don't really want to sort of tarnish your reputation as leader. now, this is actually his fifth attempt at getting a westminster seat. he's fought three general elections and a by—election previously, but he's still not quite at nigel farage's record — he took on seven, lost seven, so paul nuttall will be hoping to go one better than that.
10:08 pm
but the seat was taken by labour in the last general election, but only by 5000 ahead of ukip, who did come second, narrowly ahead of the tories. so hence paul nuttall will be thinking this is a chance for him to get into parliament. matt cole reporting there. let's return to the protests that have marked president trump's first full day in office. millions of people have joined marches around the world, including tens of thousands in london. earlier i spoke to one of the organisers of the london march, kimberly espinell, and i asked her what she made of the turnout. we were overwhelmed — we started this as nine women with no political affiliation, no political experience. we are a proper grassroots movement and never expected this sort of turnout. why did you want to organise a march like this in london, thousands of miles away from the country where donald trump will be president? because it was notjust about donald trump. his election perhaps was the straw that broke the camel's back. 2016 was a very difficult year.
10:09 pm
we had brexit, we had jo cox's stabbing, aleppo, so many difficult global occurrences, that we felt we wanted to come together in solidarity and move forward in a positive way. so what is the message, then, overall that you were trying to send? because obviously lots of different groups of people chose to turn up for their own reasons? very much so. i think what we wanted is to get people interested again in politics, involved in politics from the grassroots, who wanted to send out the message that you do matter, you can make a difference, get involved. but we also wanted to stand in solidarity together for across—the—board, religious groups coming together, different... just different causes coming together to fight for unity, human rights, dignity and also the safety of the planet. what difference will it really make, though? he hasjust begun his presidency in the usa,
10:10 pm
he has at least four years. what difference do you hope to make with one march on one day? well, this isjust the beginning. we hope people will get active in their communities, take part, that they will speak to their mps, and influence the way laws are set and the way that, you know, laws affect their community. but what would you say, though, to people who voted for donald trump, and separately voted for brexit? the two particular issues you have highlighted, they are saying, look, we have registered our vote at the ballot box, we have exercised our democratic right — why should it be overturned just because you don't like it? 0h, we don't want to overturn it. we want to open a dialogue. we cannot function in a society where there is not equality, where we are voting out of fear. if there is fear and pain, let's come together and talk about it and move forward together in a positive way. what is it, though, that
10:11 pm
donald trump stands for that you feel is unacceptable in 2017 in the united states? because clearly for a lot of people, millions and millions of people, he spoke to them. he promised a change, he was'nt part, isn't part, of the political establishment. well, he is part of the establishment. his politics serve himself and nobody else. he is not making politics for the people, so i think we need to be very careful in terms of his rhetoric, because it is quite misleading. what we were concerned about is the normalisation of very derogative comments about women, disabled people, immigrants, because that is not normal — it is unacceptable and is not a positive way of moving forward. hundreds of thousands of women lead protests around the world against the new trump administration. build bridges, not walls! 0n the president's first
10:12 pm
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. i feel like it's important. 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. in italy, rescuers still search for survivors at the hotel buried by an avalanche — after nine people were found alive yesterday. and in sport, wayne rooney takes his place in the history books as he becomes manchester united's leading goal—scorer. good evening. hundreds of thousands of people joined protest marches today across the world to voice their concern over the the new us
10:13 pm
president donald trump. the aim was to highlight women's and minority rights, which protesters say are under threat from the new administration. the bbc‘s katy kay no reports. the bbc‘s katy kay now reports. yes, we can! they came in their thousands. children, men and women, lots of women. i came from hawaii to be here today and i'm here to represent all the people that can't be here. it gives me hope for our future. 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, nowjust a citizen taking a political stand. this march was conceived as a celebration of women and of one
10:14 pm
woman in particular, hillary clinton. but after the surprising american election, it quickly became a protest, and a protest against one man in particular, donald trump. there were huge crowds in other american cities too. in liberal bastions like los angeles, where they didn't vote for trump. and in chicago, where the turnout was so big, they had to change the route. 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 to the frail. 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. but 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. the revolution starts here.
10:15 pm
president trump takes office as the most unpopular new president ever. 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 get him elected. but speaking at the agency's headquarters, he said they were amazing people and had his backing "a thousand percent". here's our north america correspondent james cook. before his inauguration, donald trump compared america's intelligence agencies to nazis. now he's their boss,
10:16 pm
and here at cia headquarters he's trying to rewrite history. the reason you're my first stop is that, as you know, i have a running war with the media. they are among the most dishonest human beings on earth. laughter and applause. and they sort of made it sound like i had a feud with the intelligence community. and i just want to let you know, the reason you're my number one stop, it is exactly the opposite. 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've been fighting these wars for longer than any wars we have ever fought. we have not used the real abilities that we have. we've been restrained. we have to get rid of isis,
10:17 pm
we have to get rid of isis. we have no choice. 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 for president trump. 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, notjust here in the united states but around the world. president trump began his first full
10:18 pm
day in office in church. he says god stopped it raining on his inaugural address. but he'll need more than prayer to unite this nation. our north america editorjon sopel is outside the white house. yesterday was his day — did today belong to those who oppose him? you know, throughout the campaign one statistic donald trump lobbed to recite was how many thousands of more people would come to his rallies than hillary clinton's, but i think having seen today it is clear and many many more people were protesting against donald trump sank into his inauguration yesterday, and that underlines just how divided this country remains after that bruising election —— van were at his
10:19 pm
inauguration yesterday. his first visit, to cia headquarters. no president has gone there before like that, but no president has declared war on the agency in that run—up to taking office. i thought it was significant, the word restrained, that he used. does that mean he will try to rewrite the rule book for how the cia can operate in the future? another thing, it looks like theresa may will not be, is not the first foreign leader, among the first to come and visit donald trump in the white house. i am sure donald trump is delighted about that and that could happen as soon as this thursday. thank you very much. thank you very much. 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. james reynolds reports.
10:20 pm
for a third day in the mountains, rescuers pick through the remains of the rigopiano hotel. they have to move carefully for fear of collapsing rubble on to anyone still trapped below. around 30 people had been waiting in the lobby when the avalanche hit. hotel worker, fabio salzetta, escaped the snowfall by hiding in a boiler room. 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, but no—one answered. but no one answered. late at night rescuers made it to four survivors, two men and two women, none were seriously injured. earlier, relief workers pulled seeks—year—old ludovica pa rete to safety, she was the final member of herfamily to be rescued. earlier, relief workers pulled six—year—old
10:21 pm
ludovica pa rete to safety, she was the final member of herfamily 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. the rescue operation will continue through the night. we're convinced that we'll find other people still alive. to find them, they'll have to dig through tonnes of snow, rock and concrete. how many more survivors might there be underneath all this? ukip‘s candidate for
10:22 pm
the upcoming by—election in stoke—on—trent central will be the party's leader paul nuttall. the mep took charge of ukip in november. he'll now try to win the seat from labour, whose previous mp tristam hunt stood down to become the head of the v&a museum. the brazilian football club chapecoense have played their first match since all but three of their senior players were killed in a plane crash last november. in an emotional return home, the side met the current brazilian champions for a friendly match. most of their players have been loaned by other brazilian clubs, as julia carniero reports. it's kick—off time for the new chapecoense. the fans have crowded the conda arena to watch their comeback. with fresh new signings, the team is taking a big step back into the game. the flight carrying
10:23 pm
the chapecoense squad crashed in the mountains, close to the city of meddellin, in november. investigators in columbia found it had run out of fuel. defender neto was the last person to be pulled from the wreckage. last week, he managed to walk again. translation: they told me the truth three days before i came back to chapeco, it was the saddest day of my life. i asked my team—mates, and the doctors said they weren't here any more. ijust couldn't believe it. ahead of today's match, the families of the crash victims were given medals in the players honour. the survivors received the copa sudamericana trophy, 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 here and being... i don't know what to say,
10:24 pm
i'm very emotional right now. 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. the match is a draw, but the chapecoense scored twice, filling fans with hope as the new team strives for a successful future. julia carniero, bbc news, chapeco, brazil. with all the sport — here's hugh woozencroft at the bbc sport centre. 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 leading goal—scorer. his equaliser against stoke city was his 250th for the club and takes him past the record of sir bobby charlton. patrick gearey reports. wayne rooney is going to take the
10:25 pm
free kick. wayne rooney! england's record goal scorer is no manchester united's record scorer. a score—mac worth a point and yet worth far more than that —— now manchester united's record scorer. in the grand scheme of things, something i never expected when i joined of things, something i never expected when ijoined the club, but iam expected when ijoined the club, but i am delighted and really proud. wayne rooney arrived at old trafford in 2004, 20 £7 million worth of teenage attention. he paid the first instalment back with a hat—trick on his debut and was united's top scorer in his first season. this passion sometimes ignited in those early years but he became their effervescent centre. absolutely fantastic! capable of turning any game upside down. he was part of a side which won five premier league, champions league and fa cup and yet twice he wanted to leave. some
10:26 pm
questioned whether he really bled red. he has passed united royalty. sir bobby charlton admitted he was disappointed to lose his record but was delighted for the man he passed it onto. bobby charlton's goals came ata it onto. bobby charlton's goals came at a slower rate over a longer period of time, but he was a midfielder and wayne rooney, a foreword. sir bobby charlton's goals are written on the imagination. he survived the munich air crash and led the club to victory. but in terms of facts and goals no one at manchester united is above wayne rooney. and you can see that record—breaking goal from wayne rooney coming up on bbc one on match of the day, along with action from the rest of today's premier league games. 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
10:27 pm
west brom also won. in scotland, there were no premiership games because of the scottish cup. 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 number one johanna konta is through to the last 16 of the australian open. she beat the former world number 1 caroline wozniacki from denmark in straight sets. in the fourth round the number nine seed will take on russia's ekaterina makarova. 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. exeter and ulster miss out, though. they both lost to french opposition. that is all the sport for now. back to you. you can see more on all of today's
10:28 pm
stories on the bbc news channel. that's all from me. goodnight. good evening. it is a cold night out there but a huge amount of variety across the uk this weekend. this beautiful shot taken from twickenham in london earlier on saturday, whereas for others it was a gloomy dull and chill day. we'll keep that going over the next 24 hours, the variety. temperatures several degrees below freezing already in some places, particularly with clear skies in eastern england. showers pushing it to parts of england and into wales. some of them are falling as snow over the high ground particularly, so watch out for ice. quite a mixture then first thing in the morning. meanwhile down under in australia of course it is not winter but summer. it will be very hot indeed as andy pics to the court, in

30 degrees out there about, and of course dan will be playing later in the day as well. good luck to the brits. back home, 29 degrees seems a long way off —— andy murray takes to the court. parts of the south—east down here, for example. watch out forice down here, for example. watch out for ice further west, and particularly where you have the showers some snow over the high ground, but no great amounts, we think. over scotland there will be some showers as well and some areas of freezing fog in the east. watch out for those. the fog could linger into the day. the showers will continue to feed it through the irish sea into parts of south—western scotland. having said all that, many places will actually be staying dry, with the best of the sunshine across the more southern and eastern parts of england. wherever you are, it will feel chilly, 9 degrees if you are lucky along the south coast but for most four or five will be more typical. briefly, in the early to mid part of the afternoon. the frost will soon
