AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – France, more fallout from that ash cloud over Iceland. Now, a French meteorologist is forecasting the ash cloud will move towards Northern Europe and affect Germany, Denmark and even France. So far the disruption from the volcano has been minor but if wind direction continues even more flights could be cancelled. So far, flights to Britain from both Warsaw and Madrid weren't allowed to take off. This eruption happened a little over a year after another volcano in Iceland erupted and caused chaos among airlines and air passengers for six days.

England – Imagine the pressure of presenting your science project to two of the most powerful men in the world, President Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron. Students were in the middle of a science fair when the two dropped in. It was just one of the stops on Obama’s 6-day, 4-country tour of Europe.

Libya – Rebels in that country are still not giving up their fight. After fighting for months in Misrata, those rebel fighters are training new recruits. They want to build a defense force to counter Muammar al-Gaddafi's military. Basic training for the recruits is just 6-days and they're taught a list of things including; unarmed combat, how to use basic light weapons, and rocket propelled grenades.

Austria – A family got a big surprise as a truck rolled into their yard. It damaged a green house, a garage, two cars and the front of the house. No one was hurt and even the 46-year old driver of the truck climbed out unharmed. A tire explosion is thought to be the reason behind this crash.
