LIBYA - An overnight NATO strike in Tripoli.
It shows fighter jets bombing a harbor, damaging five coast guard boats and a warship.
NATO says they did this because Moammar Al-Qaddafi troops have been using the vessels to attack rebel fighters.
Earlier this week, NATO bombed Qaddafis compound.

COLOMBIA - A mudslide killed one person, and injured another 15.
Its been raining hard in the area, and the earth gave way, destroying an entire neighborhood.
12 hundred people are now homeless and in need of shelter.

SPAIN - For the sixth day in a row tens of thousands of people fill the streets to say they're fed up with not having jobs.
Spain's unemployment rate is 21%, the highest in the European Union.
Officials thought about banning protests, because local elections are tomorrow, but decided things would probably get more out of hand.

ESTONIA - A group of strong men set out to show of their strength. They managed to pull a 20-thousand ton ship "The Baltic Queen" 33 feet, and that's a new world record.

ISRAEL - He did it!
The stunt man we showed you last night one upped U.S. magician David Blaine, setting a new endurance record. After standing on a nine story high pole for 35 straight hours.
Last year, Hezi Dean broke another one of Blaine's records, sitting inside an ice cube for 66 hours.
