Land of Smoke and Ash - 08 Jan 2014
Tens of thousands of people have been displaced by the eruptions of Mount Sinabung, a volcano in Indonesia's north Sumatra province.

Sinabung lay dormant for centuries but became active again in 2010. Since September last year it has been periodically spewing massive clouds of gas and ash high into the atmosphere.

Mount Sinabung continued to spew volcanic ash on Thursday as thousands of residents remained in temporary shelters fearful of more eruptions. Mount Sinabung's last eruption on Tuesday lasted about 20 minutes and sent volcanic ash 3,000 metres into the sky from its crater, authorities said, adding that there were no casualties as everyone in the nearby villages had been moved to shelters. Authorities have put the area surrounding the 2,460-metre high volcano on alert level three, recommending people not to be within a radius of three kilometres from the crater. The students pictured are attending a school outside of the evacuation area. REUTERS/Roni Bintang (INDONESIA - Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
