AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Germany, the finger pointed at a bean sprout farm in the North. Officials say traces of the deadly strain that's killed 31-people across Europe were found on the veggies in a garbage bin there. If that's really the source it’s responsible for making another 3000-people sick in a dozen countries.

Brazil – Just released video showing a train ramming into a passenger bus that had fallen off a bridge. It happened during morning rush hour in heavy rain.
Only 14-people were hurt because the driver of the locomotive managed to slow his train down and not hit the bus at full speed.

Chile – Massive waves 30-feet tall are causing lots of trouble. The rough waters are being blamed on a freak storm pattern. No deaths have been reported and some people have had to evacuate. The local fishing industry is hurting after the waves destroyed boats and equipment.

Japan – Here is an amazing survival story. A woman spent two weeks in the mountains of Nepal lost and ate whatever she could get her hands on just to stay alive. The woman said "Around two days I was just thinking about food; if I survive I am going to eat this thing and this thing and this thing.” Aside from some insect bites, she seemed to be fine.

Kenya – A baboon and a bush-baby have bonded. The two play and share meals together at an animal sanctuary. Officials say they've never seen anything like it.
