Australia – After a high-speed chase police finally get their goat.
They call her "Houdini" because for days cops couldn't catch her. One official said: "Got very close a couple of times but unfortunately it's just a bit too agile and a bit too quick." But they eventually outsmarted her. While the cops catch their breath, they'll try to find her a new home.
England – A sixty plus gun salute to honor Queen Elizabeth for her 60-years on the throne. Lots of ceremonies will be held for her today and through the rest of the year to celebrate her diamond jubilee. The Queen who is now 85-years-old became Queen in 1952.
