AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – India, Oprah's body guards got into a scuffle with local TV journalists after a few got too close to her. Police arrested three of the bodyguards for breaking some of the reporter's equipment. Oprah is in India for the first time filming her new show, “Oprah's Next Chapter.”

Panama – Crews hired to widen the Panama Canal are on strike. They want a pay-raise, overtime and vacation they claim a construction company still owes them. The workers also say conditions are unsafe.

China – A construction worker ended up in a sticky situation. The worker's excavator slid into a marshy area, which almost swallowed the big machine he was operating. One of his coworkers helped keep the driver's head above the mud so he could breathe and he was eventually rescued.

Argentina – Some 400-reptiles were seized at the Buenos Aires Airport. Someone was trying to sell them illegally. An alleged Czech, animal trafficker, was taken into custody, and police believe he was on his way to Prague.

And back to China, were three white tiger cubs are doing well thanks to help from an unlikely source.

A German shepherd stepped in to nurse them after their mother neglected them. No rivalry here, the dog seems to like the attention and the cubs are doing well and putting on weight.
