AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Egypt, it looks like it did 10-months ago here, as protestors called for the ouster of Hosni Mubarak. But these deadly riots are now aimed towards the military who some say aren't acting quickly enough to put a full-fledged democracy in place. Elections are supposed to happen next week.

Brazil – The country says it will fine Chevron 28-million dollars for its offshore oil spill. That's the highest fine allowed by law there. Officials say 110-thousand gallons of crude spilled out, starting November 7th.
And they claim the oil giant waited to tell them about the spill.

Libya – Revolutionary fighters are celebrating another big victory. They say they caught Moammar Khadafy’s spy chief and another one of his sons over the weekend. Both men have been indicted on charges of crimes against humanity.

Cambodia – An emotional ceremony on Sunday to remember the victims of the Khmer Rouge regime. Three of its former leaders will go on trial for genocide and other crimes. All are aging and in poor health leading some to believe they may die before justice served.

Mexico – Millions of monarch butterflies migrated to a sanctuary.

They travel from the cold weather in Canada and Northern America to the warmer climates to hibernate and reproduce. For many it's a 2-thousand mile trip that tourists love to come and see.
