AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Israel test-fires a missile, just 2-days after the Prime Minister warned Iran’s nuclear program seriously threatens the nation. Amateur video caught sight of the missile shortly after the surprise launch. Officials aren't saying much on the record but local media say it is a missile used for war. A local newspaper is even breaking news that Israel’s Prime Minister plans to strike Iran against advice from his military chiefs.

Syria – New conflicting reports say Syrian security forces have shot and killed at least 11-villagers. If confirmed, this would be among the worst instances of violence since the prodemocracy protests started in March.

United Kingdom – A beautiful view came a little too close for comfort for vacationers in Wales. Vacationers at a holiday trailer park were stunned to find part of the cliff they were parked on collapsed overnight. No injuries were reported.

Japan – The Prime Minister wet his whistle with water from inside the troubled Fukushima nuclear plant. He's wants people to see, it’s not dangerous, once stripped of radioactive materials.

China – It’s November, but already a contest to probe whose the country's best Santa. The 8-contestants glided on sleds, delivered gifts, and even tamed plastic reindeers. The winner goes on to Sweden for the 2011 Santa Claus winter game, in 2-weeks.
