AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – United Kingdom, London police are tracking suspected rioters to their homes and so far they've made 1200-arrests. Eight early morning raids helped calm some of the worst public violence seen in decades. The country blames street gangs and thugs for the mayhem. Police officers are working around the clock. “We have gone through video evidence and we have worked with the community to identify offenders.” The riots started Saturday after police shot and killed a man.

Colombia – Bull runs can be bloody but this one is downright gruesome. The beast goes on a rampage goring one man repeatedly till he died. The attack didn't stop other men from jumping into the ring. In all, 16-people ended up with bad injuries.

Australia – More animals going crazy, a deer dodging wildlife officials and running across busy roads and through people's backyards. Residents were caught totally off guard, "No, not in suburbia. We don't live in the Canadian wilderness or anything like that, do we?” It's rutting season and experts say the doe’s ran out of a forest to escape the males.

China – 700-pounds of explosives can do some serious damage. Officials brought down the chimney of an old power plant because it was causing a lot of pollution. This particular city started doing away with factories 10-years ago. No word yet on what’s going up in its place.

Argentina – It’s time to tango, when the world championships kick off next week. More than 400-couples from all over the world will be vying for $5,000 and international tango fame.
