AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Afghanistan, the number of Americans killed in the fallout over the burning of Koran’s in Afghanistan has risen to six. Two more U.S. soldiers were gunned down Thursday just hours after President Obama proclaimed his apology for the Koran burnings. The United Nations says violence across Afghanistan remains at its worst levels since the Taliban was toppled in late 2001.

Italy – Crews are working non-stop to recover the remaining 7-people presumed to be dead from the Costa Concordia ship wreck. The accident's pre-trial hearing starts tomorrow. Passengers and crew members, who were aboard the January thirteenth disaster, when the ship went off course and struck a reef, are expected to attend.

Poland – Wild boars are roaming one city's streets and the mayor has given hunters permission to shoot them. The boars aren't afraid of people, but they can be dangerous.

England – The world's most valuable coin is on display in London. The 1933 double eagle is one of the rarest coins of all time and it's worth more than 7-million dollars. They were melted down as part of a plan to move away from the gold standard during the Great Depression. And only 13-coins are known to have survived.
