Firefighters work at Hotel Rigopiano in FarindolaBy Antonio Denti and Crispian Balmer PENNE, Italy (Reuters) - Four children and a woman were saved on Friday from the wreckage of a mountain hotel in central Italy that was flattened by an avalanche, surviving almost two days in sub-zero temperatures in the buried ruins of the luxury spa. After a fruitless night scouring the disaster site, sniffer dogs helped locate a first group of people who were buried in a small room, its roof of reinforced concrete protecting them from the heavy weight of snow that had entombed the hotel.

FILE - In this Friday, Nov. 13, 2015, file photo, the American flag flies above the Wall Street entrance to the New York Stock Exchange. Global shares were steady in cautious trading Friday, Jan. 20, 2017, ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. China's report that its economy grew at a 6.8 percent pace in October-December was in line with expectations. (AP Photo/Richard Drew, File)Stocks edged higher in afternoon trading Friday, on course to recoup most of the market's losses from the day before. The rebound came about as investors weighed Donald Trump's swearing in as the 45th president of the United States and the latest batch of company earnings news. Phone companies led the gainers, while health care stocks were down the most.

Joaquin Guzman Loera aka "El Chapo" Guzman (C) is escorted in Ciudad Juarez by the Mexican police as he is extradited to the United StatesMexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, one of the world's most notorious criminals, pleaded not guilty in a US court Friday to a raft of firearms, drug trafficking and conspiracy charges that could see him jailed for life. Less than 24 hours after being extradited by Mexico, the 59-year-old drug baron looked tired as he stood in blue prison scrubs flanked by his US public defenders for the brief, 10-minute hearing in a federal court in Brooklyn. US prosecutors say Guzman's Sinaloa cartel is responsible for distributing hundreds of thousands of kilos of heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana throughout the United States, reaping billions of dollars in profits.
