AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – France, nearly two years after an Air France jet crashed, wreckage is discovered in the Atlantic Ocean. Investigators have released the first photos of the wreckage of Air France flight-447. Submarines found bodies but the flight recorders still haven't been discovered. So the cause of the crash is still unknown. The plane went down in the Atlantic back in 2009. It was headed to Paris from Rio Day Janeiro. All 228 people on board were killed.

Guantanamo Bay – The accused mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks will be tried here, instead of New York. Sources say Khalid Shick Mohammed and four alleged co-conspirators will now face a military tribunal.

Afghanistan – Protests continue over the burning of the Koran, at a Florida church. Hundreds of people burned and threw rocks at pictures of Pastor Terry Jones who torched Islam’s sacred text last month. The crowd was shouting “Death to America!"

United States – A school bus slammed into a home in Birmingham, Alabama this morning. Witnesses say the driver tried to avoid hitting a car. A woman was inside the home but in another room. No kids were on the bus and the driver is ok.

Norway – There's a reindeer problem. The unexpected boom in the population is creating an environmental balance. It is because the animals eat too much. Officials haven't come up with a plan to fix the overcrowding yet.
