AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – China, there are lots of angry people here. They braved freezing temps all night long all to get a new iPhone 4s. Only to be turned away. Mall security wouldn't open the doors fearing a stampede. So it was chaos outside the store as people started fighting and throwing eggs.

Also in China, the ice man.

The Guinness World Record holder performed another frigid feat this week. He buried himself in snow. No one in the world has been able to beat his record of doing it for just under 2-hours

Australia – The government is fuming over kangaroo cigarettes. They're advertised as an "Aussie Favorite" but the smokes are sold in Europe. They are trying to bank on Australia’s healthy image to sell these cigarettes to Europeans. No word yet on what the Aussies plan to do about it.

Also in Australia, a major Elvis festival is going on right now and here are some of participants. A lot of them boarded the "Elvis Express" a train that takes them right to all the fun. This Elvis fest has been going on for 20-years.

Japan – An amateur photographer captures a rare sunset called the "green flash." The phenomenon only occurs shortly before sunset or shortly after sunrise when the sun's rays are refracted by the atmosphere and appear green.
