AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – The Philippines, some farmers say they want their government to call off upcoming military exercises with the United States. The group's leader claims U.S. troops want to take over farm land for the war games. The protesters fought with police outside the American Embassy in Manila.

Haiti – A Voodoo ceremony held before a protest is calling for President Michel Martelly to step down. Some say he's not allowed to be President because he holds dual citizenships, here and in the U.S. If true that would be against the country's constitution.

China – The world's highest and longest tunnel-to-tunnel bridge is set to open here tomorrow. The bridge is 3,858-feet long and 1,100-feet high. It'll also accommodate 4-lanes of traffic. The project is over 4-years in the making.

Germany – Meet a robot who plays bass.

He's 9-feet tall and is made entirely of scrap metal. He lives and practices in a garage. His songs and moves are all produced by his creator on his keyboard. The guy wants to create an entire band of robots.
