AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Somalia, dozens of young people are believed to be dead after a truck bomb exploded right where they were applying for scholarships for college. At least 70-people are dead. An Islamist militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Libya – NTC fighters allegedly seized control of Moammar Khaddafy’s home just outside of Sirte. Soldiers say it isn't looting if it’s for a good cause. “All the money that I get is going for the nation, for the Libyan people." Khaddafy's location is still unknown.

United Kingdom – A man took police on one wild ride on a stolen forklift. He was sentenced to four and a half years in jail. The rampage through local roads and a cemetery did about 25-thousand dollars in damage. He was also operating the forklift, without insurance and without a license.

The Netherlands – A Dutch man is almost done building a perfect replica of Noah’s ark. According to the Old Testament, the ark measured 300-cubits long, which is 450-feet, and has 7-stories. That's exactly how large this one is. The designer wants to sail it into London for the 2012 Olympics as a floating zoo.

China – These little guys would be awesome guests on that ark.

These golden monkeys are an endangered species but they sure do love people. They are so rare they live on a preserve and only a few guests at a time are allowed to come in and hang out with them.
