AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – North Korea, retaliatory measures are coming. That's the warning from North Korea after the U.S. scrapped its food aid to the country. Our government made that decision following Pyongyang’s failed rocket launch. Officials still see it as a nuclear weapons test in disguise.

Egypt – Suspects in a deadly soccer riot caused a commotion in court as their trial opened. Seventy-three people stood in trial for the riots at a February soccer match where 70-people were killed.

Israel – A terrifying stage collapse happened during preparations for Independence Day celebrations in Jerusalem. We're told a 21-year-old woman was killed and several others were hurt after a lighting structure gave way while soldiers were rehearsing.

South Africa – Rhino farmers are pushing for the legalization of rhinoceros horn sales. Supporters say it would protect the animals from poachers. Rhino killings are reportedly up thirty percent.

Japan – Scientists here say they were able to grow hair on bald mice. It’s pretty complex but we're told with a little more experimenting the same technique could be used to help bald humans within the next 10-years.
