AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – The Arabian Sea, after 10-days of saber rattling against the U.S. Navy Iran can thank America for rescuing thirteen of its fisherman from pirates. The Iranian fishing vessel was taken over by the pirates 40-days ago. Fifteen pirates are now in U.S. custody.

Iraq – The country's marking the anniversary of the formation of its Army. It's the first time Iraq has marked the occasion since the 2003 invasion without U.S. troops in the country. But as the parade rolled through there were at least 3-bombings nearby.

Australia – A massive, life-threatening wildfire is burning out of control. Conditions are very hot and very dry, and firefighters are hoping for a little rain.

Israel – A flash mob formed to protest against the segregation of women.

In some cities ultra-orthodox Jews force women to the back of buses. And these ladies are hoping they can put an end to that.

United States – A big rig stuck in the middle of a frozen pond in Minnesota. Witnesses say the driver lost control on the road, and landed in the pond. The driver did manage to escape the cab and crawl across the ice to safety. No word on if crews have been able to get the semi to dry land.
