AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Thailand, it’s believed drug traffickers killed 13-Chinese sailors on cargo boats that were hijacked last week. The thirteenth and last body was found this morning. Most of the victims had been bound, blindfolded, and then shot. Officials say the hijackers haven't been caught but they did leave behind about a million speed pills.

Mexico – Law makers in Mexico City want to launch a new program to help take the drama out of divorce for newlyweds. It's a 2-year marriage contract that would give couples an option to renew or part ways at the end of the terms. It'll even have a built in pre-nuptial agreement. The Catholic Church is completely against the idea.

England – The stability of one of London’s most famous landmarks is in question. The tower that holds Big Ben is leaning a little too much and there are no plans to fix it yet. At its current rate of drift, it would take 4-thousand years for Big Ben to be tilted as far over as the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.

The Atlantic Ocean – Treasure was found on a sunken ship. It had about 20-tons of silver on board. The treasure is estimated to be worth nearly 19-million dollars. The ship sank back in 1917 after being torpedoed by a German submarine.

Australia – Golfers are praying their balls don't end up in the water. That's because about 6-bull sharks have infested a lake at the course. Some of the sharks are nearly 10-feet long. Heavy flooding recently caused the predators to wash into the lake and officials don't have plans to kick them out of there.
