AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – China, cars behind a wreck here were on the highway for hours. 40-cars were involved and over a dozen people are dead. While drivers blamed the heavy fog the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

New Zealand – It looks like something out of a movie but it's actually a Christmas tree installation that went terribly wrong. An aircraft was trying to put up the tree on Auckland’s waterfront when the blades got caught in some cables. It's tail snaps, and the pilot is tossed around as the aircraft spins and crashes to the ground. Believe it or not, the pilot is ok.

England – The boxing venue for the 2012 London Olympics is hosting a test event this week. But the bigger deal right now is whether or not female boxers will be forced to wear a skirt instead of shorts during the sports debut. One person said: "My personal opinion is if you want to wear a skirt it should be a choice, it shouldn't be forced upon anyone.” The final decision will come in the next few weeks.

Australia – Sydney police are trying to unravel the mystery of a man who left a suitcase filled with a million dollars at a café. Staff said the man looked nervous and they thought he had dropped off a bomb. A 49-year-old Chinese man has been brought in for questioning. They think he might not be all there.
