Harvey Weinstein's arrest is making headlines around the globe. We'll take you to New York for the latest. Then, we head to Sweden to talk about a new consent law that's about to go into effect. Proponents of the measure say will make it easier to prosecute rape cases. And as if Australia didn't have enough killer fauna ... we'll have the story of the town of Lismore, which is currently overrun by a colony of yellow crazy ants. Yep, that's their name.
