AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Italy, here's a picture of the old style Mafioso promise of keeping quiet. The kiss you see here is not a sign of affection but actually a vow made by one of the guys not to speak to police in jail and a confirmation from the other side that his family would be taken care of in the meantime. It’s supposed to be a secret ritual but apparently not anymore.

Chile – An active volcano is causing major headaches for travelers. That's because the ash from it has forced airports as far away as Australia to cancel flights. The mountain has been erupting for 2-weeks now and experts don't know when it'll stop.

United States – A huge gust of wind caused a racing sailboat to tip over in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. The guys on board were tossed around like rag dolls but believe it or not there were no major injuries.

China – An elderly man fell two stories from his apartment when he was trying to clean his windows and slipped and fell. Rescuers were able to pull him up. He’s at the hospital recovering from the fall.

Germany – Imagine the look on the cops faces when they pulled a van over and found another vehicle inside of it. Apparently the drivers were moving and didn't want to spend money on a trailer. Police made them pull the car out and said amazingly there wasn't a single scratch on it.
