Serbia, Russia, Canada, United States, Brazil
AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Serbia, giant chunks of ice broke free and surged through the Danube River. Some of those pieces were nearly 2-feet thick. They caused one of Belgrade’s most popular floating restaurants to sink. We're told dozens of boats also crashed into each other. But no word of anybody hurt.
Russia – The crackdown continues on a protest organized by people who say they want democratic reform and call Prime Minister Vladimir Putin a dictator. They say Putin rigs elections and they don't want him to win a third term next month.
Canada – The first hamburger grown in laboratory petri dishes could soon be on your plate. At a science conference here a Dutch biologist says "man-made meat" is possible taking using stem cells harvested from leftover animal material at slaughter houses.
United States – A big cat stuck was in a tree in California, going out on a limb to escape a determined German shepherd. It sat up there for a while and when the coast was clear it zoomed off.
Brazil – Carnival in Rio is in full swing and the party's going full blast. Revelers danced down beer-slick streets to the beat of drums and other rhythmic instruments. The street parties will continue for another week.
