1. President Bush made a rare visit to Capitol Hill, lunching with GOP senators, making the case for immigration reform. The president says the status quo isn't acceptable. It's not clear Bush changed any minds among the measures legalizing millions of unlawful immigrants.

2. Five children died in a row house fire in Pittsburgh. They were among seven in the care of a babysitter. Two children escaped. Police are now looking for the babysitter. A smoke detector1 in the home apparently2 wasn't working.

3. In London, the top floors of a building under renovation3 collapsed4, trapping a construction worker in the rubble5. He was conscious and talking to rescuers. Authorities say there's no evidence of an explosion.

4. One moment it's on, the next it's gone. What happened to the president's watch during his visit to Albania? It's been a buzz of media there hinting someone stole it. But the White House says Bush put the timepiece in a pocket returning safely home.
