Tourists are flocking to see an erupting volcano spew out clouds of ash almost two miles into the air in the far east of Russia.
The eruption is said to be unusual, with the ash and lava flowing, not out of the volcano's crater but from its sides.
Lava from Plosky Tolbachik, which has been dormant for nearly 40 years, later set fire to a nearby forest. So far, there are no reports of injuries from the incident.
While some tourists opt to keep a safe distance from the burning trees and molten rock, others are taking off-road vehicles to the base of fresh ash and rock deposits.
