AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Egypt, the march is being organized by more than a dozen groups who say their revolution demands aren't being fulfilled. Most of the people are calling for Egypt’s interim Prime Minister to step down. The anger comes just 5-months after another massive uprising ousted longtime dictator Hosni Mubarak from power.

The Netherlands – Nothing on the radio for a large part of the country after the top section of a Dutch broadcasting tower gives way. The steel construction weakened by a blaze inside. No injuries were reported.

Croatia – Dangerous forest fires have forced more than 200-residents to leave their homes. Firefighters are doing their best to contain it but hundreds of acres have already been destroyed.

Japan – The most frantic parade you'll ever see. That's because all the floats in it roll on the shoulders of some very strong men. It's part of an annual summer festival that dates back to the 13th century. It mimics a legend that involved a Buddhist priest who was carried around town sprinkling purified water to ward off an epidemic.

Germany – Zookeepers say their soccer ball kicking elephant has picked Japan to win the Women's World Cup Sunday. Nelly booted the ball into the U.S. net. The park claims the animal's psychic powers have not been disproved yet.
