AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – New Zealand, a series of earthquakes rattled Christchurch today. That’s the same city that was devastated by a quake in February. Buildings shook, people ran into the street in a panic. But there were no reports of serious injuries or heavy damage. U.S. experts said today's tremors could be aftershocks of the strong earthquake in February that killed 182-people.

Colombia – Amateur bullfights never seem to end well. This time in the ring six people were hurt. We're told most people are amateurs and are often times very drunk. These events are supposed to be illegal.

Israel – Four Christian pilgrims have arrived in Jerusalem after trekking more than 26-hundred miles through 11-countries. Their trip to the Holy Land took them 7-months. The pilgrims even crossed Syria. According to the U.N. it's where 5-thousand anti-government protesters have been killed.

Mexico – It was quite a spectacle off the coast today; an estimated 18-thousand gray whales are migrating south to have babies. The giant beauties aren't afraid of humans, and boats carrying sightseers can come very close to them for great views.
