AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Afghanistan, British and Danish soldiers are suiting up with all the things you'd expect. Plus, some silk boxers. The troops say the underwear may not be strong enough to stop shrapnel but they are good protection from tiny debris from explosions.

Italy – Don't plan to pass away in the village of Falciano del Massico because dying has been declared illegal here. That's because there is no cemetery here and officials have nowhere to put the deceased. The mayor says the villagers are fine with the law.

England – Welcome to London’s Hotel Alcatraz.

You can check out only if you’re on good behavior. The place is modeled after the notorious prison in San Francisco. The rooms are really jail cells and prison wardens keep a watchful eye.

France – A French stripper wants to be the country's next president. Cindy Lee received an endorsement from an elected official today. She needs 499-more votes to get on the presidential ballot.

China – Two brothers not only eat their veggies but they also play music with them.

The two are both in their forties and grew up on a farm. They say their father encouraged them to play all kinds of instruments. Today they make a living off their talent.
