AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – The Indian Ocean, a fire broke out in the generator room of the Costa Allegra today. There were no injuries among passengers or crew, but now the ship is powerless about 20-miles from the Seychelles Islands. A number of ships in the area have been sent to help but the clock is ticking because Somali pirates operate in these waters.

Pakistan – This is what's left of Osama Bin Laden's former compound after Pakistani authorities demolished it.

Witnesses say the compound was so large that it took demolition crews 3-days to knock it down.

Germany – German leader Angela Merkel got a big, cold surprise at a political rally today. Her waiter tried to serve her some beer and ended up spilling all the drinks on his tray on her. But Merkel was a great sport and even turned around and smiled at the waiter.

Russia – The pancake rush is on and people here will stuff themselves with flapjacks all week to mark the symbolic end of winter and coming of spring. The pancakes they're eating symbolize the Sun.

Sweden – The world is getting their first glimpse of the country's newborn princess who's second in line to the Swedish throne. Baby Estelle is the daughter of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
