AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Iraq, A string of bombings has killed at least 25-people and sent dozens more to the hospital. Suicide bombers detonated explosives in a handful of neighborhoods. But it looks like they were taking aim at police.

Libya – Heavy fighting in Sirte continues and NTC fighters say now they have the remaining Khaddafy forces cornered. A Colonel says they captured more than 20-Khaddafy loyalists as they tried to flee.

Argentina – A homeowner took an afternoon siesta and woke up to this.

He rushed to turn off the electricity in his home just as fuel started leaking. And when he came back the pilot and passenger were climbing out of the plane's wreckage unhurt.

Honduras – The navy released a video of a makeshift submarine that drug dealers were using to smuggle tons of cocaine. It was discovered in July. It took crews 3-months to pull it from the sea floor.

The Netherlands – No toilets on trains but they are getting baggies. For privacy people can use them to relieve themselves at a designated space behind the conductor. Commuters are really hoping it's a joke.

South Africa – Some wild video of an antelope that wasn't too pleased with these bikers. With a flying tackle, the big guy took one of them out. Male antelopes average about 330-pounds. So you know that had to hurt.
