AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Germany, The Berlin wall came down 22-years ago today. People started tearing it down November 9, 1989. Today a monument has taken its place to remember all those people who were killed trying to cross it.

Brazil – World Cup officials are urging the country to hurry up and pass a package of new laws if they want to host the tourney in 2014. The rules concern ticket prices and alcohol sales in stadiums. The problem is some of FIFA's demands go against laws already in place.

Egypt – The eggs started flying the moment Syrian officials arrived at the Arab League Headquarters. Protestors got so rowdy that three-fourths of the delegation didn't make it in. The Arab League is meeting to discuss the antigovernment uprisings in Syria.

France – Now you can find Picasso and Pac Man under the same roof. An exhibition featuring vintage video games is opening at Paris' Majestic Grand Palais tomorrow. The "Homage to the Home Console" traces the development of video games from the 1970’s to today.

Canada – It's mating season for African penguins at the Toronto zoo but this year, there's a bit of a problem. There are only 6-males and 6-females, and two of the males don't want to part. "We just need them to meet some girls and do their thing." So for now, Pedro and Buddy have to put their bromance on hold.

Tune in every night at 9:00 p.m. on FOX44 New Baton Rouge for more Around the World.
