AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Russia, at least fifty people are dead after a cruise ship sank Sunday afternoon. The fear is a hundred more people drowned. The ship was reportedly carrying over double its capacity.

In another river in Russia, at least five people have died after a plane goes down. Witnesses say its left wing was on fire before it slammed into the water. The country's higher-ups are meeting to discuss the recent string of bad accidents.

India – A train derails after the driver tries to keep from hitting cows on the tracks. The death toll here is now over sixty, with bodies still being pulled out from underneath the wreckage.

Iceland – Smokers may have to start calling their doctors for a pack. A new law would ban the sale of cigarettes in stores, allowing only pharmacies to dispense them.

United States – A Texas couple possibly holding a state record in their arms. Their baby boy was born sixteen pounds and one ounce at birth. "A lot of the stuff we bought him is too little so we will have to exchange a lot of stuff." It caught the hospitals' nursery off guard too; there weren't any diapers big enough for him.

Canada – A pair of young moose on the loose. They stopped traffic and caused a stir for several hours. Wildlife officials eventually had to bust out the tranquilizer darts.

Germany – Rabbits are jumping at the chance to become champions. The talent in the bunny hop keeps these rabbits competing and off dinner plates.
