AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Russia, a jet that was carrying the Lokomotiv hockey team and several former NHL people crashed. A total of 43-people were killed and 2-people survived. But we're told they're in critical condition. The hockey team was headed to the site of their season opener.

Libya – Exactly where Mommar Gadaffi is right now is still unknown but his spokesman claims the ousted leader never left the country. “He is in Libya. He is safe, he is very healthy, and he is in high morale.” Rebel forces took control of the capital, Tripoli, two weeks ago.

Colombia – 4.5-million dollars’ worth of marijuana was found underneath a load of onions in a truck today. Police say that's how smugglers tried to disguise the drugs. No word where they were headed.

China – Conjoined twins were separated after a 6-hour surgery. The two were born back in April and had a combined weight of 10-pounds, 12-ounces. Doctors managed to split their shared heart sacs and a single liver. They now each have a working heart and half a liver.

Staying in China – There was a quite unique wedding proposal at a dolphin show. The romantic rides in on one, surprising his girlfriend who thought she was randomly called on stage. He got down on his knee, leaving his girlfriend speechless. The months of practice in the pool paid off because she said yes.
