AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Spain, the second run of the world famous festival was not as clean as the first one. A tourist fell down near the finish line and was gored by one of the bulls. He had to get surgery and we're told he's doing ok. Two other runners were also gored and lots of people suffered bad injuries. Yesterday only a few people with cuts and bruises.

France – About 20-masked robbers stopped both a passenger and freight train. They blocked the track with metal rods and shopping carts. Then the robbers broke into a number of boxcars taking specific items and disappeared. No one was injured during the robbery and officials are refusing to tell us what was stolen.

Libya – The first report we've done here where people are actually smiling. That's because 25-couples tied the knot. They are Muammar al-Gaddafi supporters and hundreds of others joined the celebration in Tripoli. There message to Nato was “Leave Libyans alone.” The coalition began airstrikes there in March.

Japan – The country held a series of evacuation drills today just in case disaster strikes. The March 9.0 earthquake and tsunami killed an estimated 22-thousand-629 people.

Europe – People are going lotto ticket crazy. That's because the jackpot is the biggest one ever. It has maxed out at 264-million 587-dollars. Whoever the lucky winner is will get every single penny because the pot is tax free.
