AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Kazakhstan, flight controllers say they lost contact of that unmanned Russian rocket after it malfunctioned and 6-minutes later it crashed. It was supposed to deliver supplies to a 6-man crew in the space station. Those astronauts still have plenty of supplies and aren't in danger.

South Africa – A school bus crash and killed at least 14-kids and their driver. The bus swerved off a road and plunged into a lake. Divers and other emergency workers successfully rescued more than forty other children.

Greece – Giving two soccer teams the boot from the pro leagues, obviously made some futbol fans very angry. The unruly crowd clashed with police, set garbage cans on fire, and threw rocks at government buildings. Officials punished the teams for their involvement in a match fixing scandal.

United States – With the dashboard cam was rolling in a deputy cruiser when a drunk driver slams into the officer head on. The SUV's 21-year-old driver is facing all kinds of charges including DWI and reckless driving. The police officer is ok.

Austria – A birthday party for one special panda at the Vienna zoo. "Fu Hu" just turned one. He gets the red carpet treatment because he’s one of two pandas in Europe born after natural mating. Giant pandas are one of the world's rarest and most endangered species.
