travelling from the us to the us rom one of the seven countries. travellers from the uk will not be effected and neither will. .. travellers from the uk will not be effected and neither will... unless they arejoint effected and neither will... unless they are joint citizens in which case they are likely to face additional checks. for all the confusion, aids have deemed the travel ban a success and they have issued a statement seeking to dispel suggestions that it amounted to a ban on muslims... despite the backlash, donald trump knows that many who voted for him did so specifically because of his promised combat islamic terrorism. to them, this represents another promise kept. and sally is here with all the business news. a90

a 90 day suspension and those 90 days every business will say that is three months of our annual income. people who have staff stuck in epp, people wanting to come back to the us to work. it has been extremely difficult and leaders of many global businesses have been swift to react to this travel ban. technology firms have been among the first to speak out. google said it will take legal action to protect it employees, staff who could be caught up in the ban. the head of tesla — elon musk — says the ban isn't the best way to address challenges the country is facing — and says he will take up industry concerns with president trump's business advisory council. emirates — one of the world's biggest long haul carriers —
5:11 am
has had to change flight rosters for pilots and cabin crew. while etihad — the national airline for the united arab emirates — says it is offering affected passengers the option to refund or change their flights. that is just the tip of the iceberg. also, for the second sunday in a row of major us airline is forced to ground domestic flights due to what it calls at automatic issues. delta airlines said it was facing a "systems outage”, but flights already in the air were unaffected. federal aviation officials say international flights were not affected. the previous sunday a computer problem forced united airlines to ground all domestic flights for about an hour. we will explain all of that and all the other is as stories. it is packed agenda. in france, benoit hamon will be the ruling socialist party's candidate in april's presidential election.
5:12 am
the a9 year—old is from the hard left of the party and supports the legalization of cannabis and euthanasia. he also backs the idea of paying every french citizen a basic wage because of the increasing number ofjobs being lost to automation. as lucy williamson reports, he's beaten the former prime it was the unknown against the unpopular. and in this election inexperience counts. benoit hamon has been dubbed france's jeremy corbyn, a one—time junior minister with a plan to tax robots, legalise marijuana and pay everyone £600 a month. translation: faced with a privileged right, and a destructive far right, our country needs to have the left but a moderate innovative left that looks to the future. the problem is, half the party hates his ideas. this primary was meant to boost the socialists‘ slender chances by giving them a candidate
5:13 am
they would unite around but after five bitter years of infighting, unity may be too much to ask. especially as this man is already siphoning centre—left supporters away from the socialist party. emmanuel macron is 39 years old and has never been elected but his campaign, more energy than experience, is drawing crowds his rivals can only dream of. antiestablishment, pro—european and liberal on both economic and social issues — this is populism for centrists on both the right and left. before emmanuel macron i tried other political movements and first of all the parti socialiste, but those last years, the parti socialiste was lost and the main subject on which it was not very clear was about the economy.
5:14 am
so after political upheavals in america and the uk, how is france's presidential race taking shape? francois fillon, the centre—right favourite is fighting off allegations that his wife received public money for work she had not done. far right leader marine le pen also has strong support. she has promised to pull france out of the euro and drastically reduce immigration. benoit hamon, lagging far behind, seems unlikely to pose a serious threat. but one man who could is emmanuel macron. he is likely to gain the most from the socialist choice of leader. this primary has eluded both a sitting president and a prime minister. the men with power, it seems, don't always win the party. just as hard perhaps for the party to win power. lucy williamson, bbc news, paris still to come: diversity wins as

black actors take the top honours in oui’ black actors take the top honours in our way. —— los angeles. the shuttle challenger exploded soon after liftoff. there were seven astronauts on board, one of them a woman school teacher. all of them are believed to have been killed. by the evening, tahrir square, the heart of official cairo, was in the hands of the demonstrators. they were using the word "revolution". the earthquake singled out buildings, and brought them down in seconds. tonight, the search for any survivors has an increasing desperation about it as the hours pass. the new government is firmly in control of the entire republic of uganda. moscow got its first taste of western fast food, as mcdonald's opened their biggest restaurant, in pushkin square.
5:16 am
but the hundreds of muscovites who queued up today won't find it cheap, with a big mac costing half the day's wages for the average russian. this is bbc world news. i'm adnan nawaz. the latest headlines: at least four people have been killed after shots were fired at a mosque in the canadian city of quebec. other worshippers have been injured, and two people have been arrested in connection with the attack. in the face of widening criticism and protests, president trump has defended his temporary travel ban on people from seven mainly muslim countries. let's stay with that story. our correspondent, rajini vaidyanathan, has been speaking to some protesters in washington. this protest was organised relatively late notice and they managed to get a huge crowd here. what do you think of what has happened here today,
5:17 am
it was relatively last—minute thing, this rally happening? yeah, and it seems like it's happening in cities all across the country right now. i think it's moving, i think it's tragic, i think it's beautiful and i'm just sad it has to be because we have so much potential in this country. we have such peaceful people. we're country of immigrants. do you want to show the world what your sign says? yes. what does it say? because i know that mum knows best. there's you mum there, so why does mum know best? what's your message? the message is that this is not american at all and we are standing here today fighting against injustices and oppression. black, brown, yellow, red, we are standing together to send an urgent message to donald trump that this is not acceptable, it is unconstitutional and we're gonna resist every step of the way. just explain why you decided to write that on your sign. so i think that trump has been trying to cover up what he is doing
5:18 am
and what he's saying by excusing himself saying, "oh, it's not a muslim ban" or "we're saying no to bad people" but i think that's deceiving so i wanted to make sure that trump and the world knows we're not deceived by what he tries to cover up and say about his policies, that he is harming people. donald trump's only been in power forjust over a week and this is another day of protests here outside the white house. while there are a number of protests, there are also many people who support the immigration ban. tougher immigration rules were a major part of donald trump's campaign, and many see the move as the president doing what he promised. the bbc has also been hearing from some supporters of the policy on new york's staten island. whatever needs to be done has to be done, and this is for the safety of everybody. we're living in a dangerous world and donald trump's number one job is to protect the american people.
5:19 am
we live in a country of democracy, and if the majority of the people feel threatened and they want things in place, then we should be able to have things in place. i think circujmstances in the middle east over the last, say, four or five years have required a degree of caution that we have not been exercising before, so accordingly i do think it is appropriate. i have mixed feelings because memebers of my family came here as immigrants, however they came here at a much, much different time in history and now with all the lone wolves that operate and attack, you know, the us, we really need to have some form of vetting in place. donald trump said that this ois temporary so — i trust him. his number one job is to protect the american people and i think he's doing it and he said he was going to do it. that is why he was voted in. do i agree with everything he is doing right now? no, i don't.
5:20 am
but i feel he has a reason for doing what he is doing and we just have to wait and see. my parents are immigrants as well, you know, but they came legally, with their own visa and stuff like that. hopefully they can have a future the way our family did. personally i feel that if people want to come to my country and they want to live here and stay here if vetting is part of the process that should be acceptable to them as if i went to their country and there was a vetting process in place that i would have to abide by it. we are very threatened in this country and there are a lot of things in the general public does not know about that the government does as far as security and threats to our country and if they feel this is necessary, i am with it all the way. and for more detail on who's affected by the travel ban

and all the latest updates just go to our website. in sport, five years after his 17th grand slam title, on sunday, roger federer extended the all—time record by winning his 18th. he went into the australian open without any competitive tennis sincejuly. then, in the final, he was up against a man whom he hadn't beaten in a grand slam final since 2007. this is what nadal means to federer. rafa definitely has been very particular in my career. he made me a better player. him and a couple more players have done the most to do that to me. the way he is again stacks up with me, it is a tricky one, you know. isaid stacks up with me, it is a tricky one, you know. i said that openly and it remains for me the ultimate challenge to play against him. so it's definitely very special. i said that also before the final, if i
5:22 am
we re that also before the final, if i were to win against rafa in the final it would be super special and very sweet because i haven't beaten him ina very sweet because i haven't beaten him in a grand slam finalfor a long, long time now, the last time in 2007 at wimbledon in a five setter. i think it would take time to sink in. i will go back to sit there and be like, wow, it is gonna feel different. i can't compare this with any other one, except maybe the french open in ‘09, because i waited for the french open, i tried, i fought, tried again and failed, as eventually i made it, so this feels similar. black actors have dominated the screen actors guild awards in hollywood, which are traditionally a good indicator for the oscars. denzel washington was named the best actor for fences and his co—star viola davis won best supporting actress. the only white performer to win was emma stone for best actress in la la land. james cooke reports from los angeles. hollywood gathers amid the usual glitz and glamour at a tortuous time

weather system just dragging its heels. —— this stage. eventually it is pulling away and then there is a gap between the next system coming in from the atlantic, so more outbreaks of rain into scotland and northern ireland to end the day. i just want to show you the big picture from thursday into friday with an area of low pressure in the atlantic, now, it might not look like this, it probably won't, but i wa nt to like this, it probably won't, but i want to flag up the possibility that this week could end on a very windy note. watch this space. this is bbc world news, the headlines: up to five people are reported to have been killed after gunmen opened fire at mosque in the canadian city of quebec. the shooting took place during evening prayers. two people have been arrested. president trump has defended his temporary travel ban on people from seven mainly muslim countries in the face of widening criticism and protests. in a written statement, mr trump accused the media of falsely reporting that it amounted to a ban on muslims. voters in france have chosen a candidate from the hard—left. benoit hamon will be
