France, Serbia, Peru, Australia
AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – France, world banks are pledging twenty billion dollars towards the Arab spring countries. That is part of a total package announced at the Group of Eight Summit. Leaders say the goal is for the whole package to be forty billion for countries like Tunisia and Egypt who are trying to establish democracies. But the aid will be tied to progress on political and economic reforms.
Serbia – A court ruled today that Ratko Mladic is healthy enough to stand trial in The Hague. The former fugitive is charged with directing the slaughter of eight-thousand Muslim men and boys during the Bosnian war. His attorney plans to appeal the decision on Monday.
Peru – Tempers flew and so did eggs at a campaign rally. The eggs splattered on the presidential candidates jeans but she kept going on with her speech. People are obviously upset that she is running. Her father served as President for a decade, a term marred by corruption scandals.
Australia – A 26-year old man has the biggest feet in the world. He wears a size 26 in shoes. Iroga says: "It's something that amazes people, just to see the big foot" and Peter's getting bigger. He’s almost seven-foot-four...he's a high school basketball champ and if all goes as planned he hopes to try out for the NBA.
