AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Mexico, in the border town of Juarez Felipe Calderon unveiled a billboard that reads "No More Weapons!" Its close enough to the border, Americans can see it on the other side. The president says, if dangerous guns don't make their way to Mexico the drug cartels can't use them.

Nigeria – Over 100-prisoners escaped a jail after gunmen broke in and attacked. Fingers are pointed at an Islamist sect. Right now, authorities are trying to bring the inmates back into custody.

Thailand – Airports are a mess here after an Australian airline cancelled flights. Air Australia says it ran out of money. More than two-thousand airline passengers are stranded. And they might not get a refund.

Italy – Authorities have confiscated 6-trillion dollars in counterfeit U.S. bonds. Eight people were arrested for this sketchy operation. We're told they planned to sell the counterfeit bonds to a developing nation either directly or through an intermediary bank.

England – Looks like hats are back at London’s fashion week.

That's what’s hot right now. One hat maker says it's all because of Kate Middleton.
