In this Wednesday, June 18, 2014 photo, clouds float over the peak of Mt. Paektu in North Korea's Ryanggang province. More than a thousand years ago, a huge volcano straddling the border between North Korea and China was the site of one of the biggest eruptions in human history, blanketing eastern Asia in its ash. But unlike other major volcanos around the world, the remote and politically sensitive Mount Paektu remains almost a complete mystery to foreign scientists who have - until recently - been unable to conduct on-site studies.

FILE - In this May 10, 2014 file photo, Jennifer Lawrence attends the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" world premiere in New York. As investigators worked Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014, to determine who stole and posted nude photos of several female celebrities online, efforts by the stars to have the images removed from websites made them increasingly difficult to find. Copyright complaints apparently prompted the removal of the image from sharing site Imgur.com and rendered links on the social networking site Reddit inoperable in what experts call an online version of “whack a mole” that will never fully scrub the intimate photos of Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and other stars from the Internet.
