AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – United Kingdom, a record drug bust, 1.2-tons of cocaine were found on a yacht. It’s believed the drugs are from Venezuela. Officials say this find and 6-arrests is huge: “This is 1.2-tons of 90-percent pure cocaine, which will be cut up to 5-times that level before it reaches the street and will consist of well over 7-million street deals." The cocaine's street value is close to 500-million dollars.

Lithuania – One mayor has a real problem with people parking illegally in his city and appears to have lost his patience. Hopping behind the wheel of an armored vehicle, the mayor drove over a Mercedes parked in a bicycle lane. Don't worry the mayor hasn't snapped, It was just a publicity stunt.

Chile – New video has been released of 33-trapped miners as they waited to be rescued. Can you believe the explosion that caused them to be stuck down there for 70-days? It happened almost a year ago. The video was what the guys recorded themselves with a small video camera.

United States – The peacock that escaped New York’s Central Park Zoo apparently got homesick. He was hanging out on a 5th-story window ledge of a nearby building for 18-hours yesterday. He flew back to his enclosure at sunrise, just like zookeepers expected.
