AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Peru, it could take another two or three days to rescue the 9-miners trapped inside a cooper mine. They've been there since Thursday after a controlled explosion went bad. Rescue workers from mines nearby and as far away as Chile and Mexico have joined efforts to save the men. They've also been pumping the men oxygen and liquids through a hose.

Colombia – Scientists say a volcano that killed thousands of people in the 1980's could erupt again within days. The plumes of smoke and strong smells of sulfur are coming from the Nevado de Ruiz volcano. Officials are keeping an eye on it but haven't evacuated anyone yet.

Mexico – Hundreds of people gathered to burn effigies of Judas, some 50-feet tall. Judas is the man Christians believe turned Jesus over to the Romans before his death. The fires are said to symbolize the triumph of good over evil.

China – Day turning to night almost instantly. A massive sandstorm blanketed an entire city North of Beijing yesterday. The sandstorm that lasted about 2-hours actually lowered temperatures 10-degrees.

Germany – A flash mob of more than 500-people started a pillow fight. All of it is in the name of international pillow day which was Sunday. Police were there just in case the fluff got out of hand. Thankfully it didn't.
