AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Hong Kong, a safe landing for the much anticipated Boeing-787 Dreamliner from Tokyo today. The jet is built out of lightweight materials that help improve its fuel efficiency. It was supposed to start flying 3-years ago but there have been lots of manufacturing delays.

Portugal – Thirty-four years after a Swiss plane crashed, divers finally found the wreckage of the aircraft at the bottom of the ocean. Only half the passengers on this flight survived. There are still pieces of the plane missing.

Dubai – A TV station says they have video of Khaddafy's funeral prior to his body being taken away to a secret location for burial. Inside the two other wooden coffins are reportedly his son and an aid.

Nigeria – A traffic cop made the morning commute a little less frustrating. He danced in the street on one of the busiest intersections in the country's Capital. And the music is all in his head.

China – One man’s parrot is a little extra special. The hill myna bird loves to mimic his owner, in English and in Mandarin.

France – The original drawings from the first Smurf comics are on sale. The black and white drawing for the cover of “The Smurf’s and the Magic Flute” from 1958 is expected to sell for around as much as 167-thousand dollars.
