AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Togo, soccer fans are in shock after a bus carrying one of the country's top teams crashed over the weekend. Witnesses say they heard a tire pop just before it plunged down a steep ravine and burst into flames. At least 6-players from the Shooting Stars soccer team are dead and over 2-dozen more are in the hospital.

Indonesia – Search crews are looking for another bus that fell off a broken bridge. The replica of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge collapsed while workers were doing repair work. The death toll here sits at thirteen and at least 3-dozen are still missing.

Egypt – A huge turnout at the polls today in the first elections since President Mubarak was ousted from office. Some places were for women voters only. The parliamentary election will be held in stages and will last until March.

Japan – Take a look at a car of the future.

Toyota showed off the experimental Fun-Vii to the public for the first time today. On this car's side is a touch screen computer so drivers can change the color and design of the body whenever they feel like it. Sorry folks, this car won't be available for a few more Christmases.

Argentina – An apple pie has made its way into the world record books. It's the world longest at 984-feet. It took 20-thousand apples to make it. And those who were smart enough to stick around after the record was confirmed were able to dig in.
