AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – United Kingdom, kids as young as 8-years-old are taking part in cage fighting and officials have no plans to stop it. Officials saw a video of kids cage fighting and say they're not going to take any action against organizers. The eight and nine year olds go at it in a cage, in front of a sold out crowd, before an MMA event. Some call it barbaric and some say there's nothing wrong with it.

Staying in the United Kingdom, a bus driver misjudged the height of a bridge. It was full of college kids, twelve had to be rushed to the hospital, and most are out. But one woman reportedly has a broken collar bone.

Brazil – Memo to travelers: don't ride around the amazon in a motor home. A British couple tried to cross a bridge in the rainforest when it collapsed. The couple and their trailer ended up in a ravine. Luckily, they had a satellite phone and the Brazilian military rescued them.

Bulgaria – A guy without a job ended up striking gold. He found a four thousand year old treasure stash hidden in the trunk of a tree. And get this; he says a local fortune teller told him exactly where to find it. The find was so huge the local museum says it doesn't even have a safe enough place to put it.

Iran – A taxi service for females, by females. The cabs are only driven by ladies and only pick up same sex passengers. It’s to make women feel safe and comfortable. But their male counterparts oppose the idea; women are not equal under Iran’s constitution
