Hello everyone. I'm Creshon Saunder at the CNN.com newsroom in Atlanta. Here is a look at what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

 

Britain's Guardian Newspaper has posted a new video. It says shows vote-rigging in Zimbabwe's presidential runoff. The footage was shot secretly by a prison guard. In it, officials dictate who'd vote for and are seeing stuffing completed ballots in envelop. The White House issued the statement saying "there should be no question in anyone's mind that Mugabe was not elected by the people. He used corruption, intimidation and violence to keep this election from being free and fair, as the evidence seems to show every day. The international community should stand together in recognizing that the election was a sham. And Mugabe is not the legitimate leader of Zimbabwe."

 

Former hostage Ingrid Betancourt is getting complete medical checkup in Paris today. This video shows tears and overwhelming relief and joy in a rescue helicopter just moment after she and 14 other Colombian rebel held hostages were rescued earlier this week and told they were free.  Betancourt pulled down a poster of her captivity at a welcoming ceremony in Paris Friday. The 46-year-old French Colombian was held captive by rebels for 6 years.

 

About 1000 thousand people have gathered in northern Japan to protest G8 summit. They are demanding solutions to issues like Global Warming and Poverty. At least four people have already been arrested. The meeting of the world's top industrialized nations begins Monday. President Bush will be among those attending.

 

Now to the wildfire burning at S.t Barbara county California. Firefighters are trying to save several thousand homes in the town of keleta. A mandatory evacuation order is in effect for some 5,000 homes there with another 1,400 on standby. Meanwhile nearly 2,000 firefighters are still battling a two-week old fire in Big Sur. It's taking hold of more than 108 square mils in the northern end of  Los Padres  National Forest.

Venus Williams has taken home her fifth Lady's Single title at Wimbledon. She beat her little sister Serena in straight sets:7-5 and 6-4. Venus had faced her sister twice before in Wimbledon but Serena won both of those matches. Congratulations Venus.
