AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – China, a man reportedly fell in a park. Rescue workers had to climb up a mountain to reach him. The team finally got a stretcher to the scene and brought him to safety. No word on his condition.

Nepal – Exiled Tibetans clashed with police today. They were angry after authorities told them they couldn't celebrate the Dalai Lama's birthday. Police detained three Tibetans who refused to leave and tried to hold a prayer meeting on the streets.

Greece – Getting a cab ride in the country's capital could be a little tricky right now. That's because Greek taxi drivers launched a twenty-four-hour strike today to protest a new law that would allow new drivers to buy cheaper licenses.

Canada – It's a lobster oddity. A bright orange lobster already looks like he's been cooked. This only happens in one in ten million lobsters. Staff at a supermarket where he ended up thought it was a joke and now they’re refusing to sell him.

India – About 250-children are dancing into the Guinness Book of World Records, on roller-skates. The kids danced more than 3-minutes at different locations. We're told they're between the ages of four and fourteen and had practiced for years before making the record attempt.
