Afghanistan, Japan, India, England, Australia
AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Afghanistan, "Sesame Street" will soon be on TV in a country where children struggle to get even a little education. The hope is the show will help young Afghans just learn the basics. "Sesame Street" started in the US in 1969.
Japan – Lots of married couples reenacted their big day, as they try to replace the photos they lost during the earthquake and tsunami. A nonprofit group organized a free photo shoot to help bring cheer back to these people's lives. A common cause of depression for survivors has been the loss of family photos.
India – Tibet's spiritual leader refuses to give up, going ahead with his scheduled participation in a global Buddhist gathering. China reportedly demanded he cancel. But he refused leading a multi-faith prayer session at the Gandhi memorial.
England – Adolf Hitler’s old stuff is hit the auction block. One of his sheets with his initials and swastika on it fetched 31-hundred dollars yesterday. It’s one of hundreds of historic items from the World War II era going to the highest bidder. Hitler's old desk used at the signing of the Munich pact is expected to go for half a million dollars.
Australia – This Aussie has grown one freaky fruit.
"It just kept growing and growing and got so big. And all our friends would come around and say 'oh, that's a big pineapple.'” It’s big enough to break a world record, weighing in at 18-and-a-quarter pounds.
