The search for two missing NFL players and one other man continues this morning. US Coast Guard are now searching the Gulf1 of Mexico for Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper and free-agent Corey Smith. They have narrowed down the search area after finding a fourth man clinging to the capsized fishing vessel2 off the Florida Coast. The men went missing after a terrible storm overturned their boat on Saturday night.

At least six people are dead after the Sri Lankan cricket team's bus was attacked in Pakistan. Heavily armed gunmen were caught on tape as they opened fire on the visiting sports team's bus. At least eight players were wounded, and the six killed were security guards. All of the attackers escaped. Nobody has claimed responsibility as of yet.

Today is a very busy day for President Obama. He meets with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown for talks on the global economic crisis and other issues. The president will also visit the Department of Transportation, and speak with the employees there.

And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres today. Also on her agenda, including incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Clinton is pledging American support when he takes over, even though he doesn't necessarily see the need for a separate Palestinian state. Also during her visit, Clinton also called for rocket attacks from Gaza to stop.
