Need to Know News: Two photographers killed in Libya; gas prices at all time high

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For April 21, 2011 – Two photographers killed in Libya while rebels take over border crossing; report shows iPhones secretly track users' location, a video you've gotta see...

• Two photographers killed in Libya: "Friends and loved ones of two journalists killed in Libya remembered them Thursday as brave men committed to finding and exposing the truth even in some of the most dangerous conditions. Oscar nominee Tim Hetherington and acclaimed photojournalist Chris Hondros died Wednesday while chronicling the gritty violence in the war-torn city of Misrata in Libya, their agencies said. Two other photojournalists were hurt in the incident, according to news reports."

• Rebels claim they hold Libyan border crossing: "Libyan rebels seized control of a key border crossing into Tunisia, a spokesman for an opposition group said Thursday. The crossing in Wazen, Libya, could prove key to access to the city of Nalut, under siege by Moammar Gadhafi's forces for the past month. Thousands have fled the fighting through Wazen to the nearby Tunisian town of Dehiba, where temporary camps have been set up for the displaced."

• Gas prices at all-time high but oil stays low: "Gasoline prices have been rising for months and are within striking distance of their 2008 all-time high of $4.11 a gallon. But while oil prices are above $100 a barrel, they're still 24% below their 2008 all-time high."

FAA to monitor VP, First Lady's D.C. flights: "Both the Federal Aviation Administration and the independent National Transportation Safety Board are investigating an aborted landing by a plane carrying first lady Michelle Obama because it was too close to a military plane ahead, officials announced Wednesday."

• Report shows iPhones secretly track their users' location: "Apple devices appear to be tracking their owners' locations and storing data about people's whereabouts without their knowledge, according to a report posted Wednesday on a site called iPhone Tracker.The unauthorized surveillance started in June 2010, when the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system was released, according to two researchers who say they discovered a hidden tracking file and posted it out of concern for users."

Tickled penguin video goes viral: "More than a million people have watched a YouTube video of a penguin being tickled at the Cincinnati Zoo." Add yourself to the list. Happy Thursday!

    As far as the high gas prices go, this "CORRUPT GOVEERNMENT" of ours is behind the whole thing as well as the "GREEDY OIL MAJORS"... Our gov is always saying crap and talking about other governments in other countries being so corrupt, well this gov needs to be looking in the mirror when such crap-talk about CORRUPTION in other countries is brought up. The people of this country are so trained that they think our own government can't be corrupt liers and dishonest money hoarders, well they could'nt be more wrong... It's almost rib-cracking funny that so many people can't see what is really going on in this country, or they can't quit doing their drugs and being alcoholics long enough to see the real picture.. Why do you IDIOTS think this gov won't do anything about THE BORDER problems with that piece of SH-T COUNTRY of Mexico, let me give you morons a hint, because the more drugs of all types that get thru the border the stupider you all stay.. The people of "AMERICA NEED TO CLEAN UP AND SOBER UP" and
