Police evicted two dozen Amazon natives from an old Indian museum that will be demolished to clear areas adjacent to Brazil’s legendary Maracana soccer stadium, the main venue for next year’s World Cup. The Indians from differentAmazon tribes had been living on the grounds of the Rio de Janeiro museum since 2006 and were resisting its demolition.
Brazilian military police took position early morning outside the abandoned museum, where the community of around 30 native Indians have been living in since 2006. The community was ordered to leave the museum in 72 hours by court officials since last week, local media reported. Most of the Indians later left the museum after making a deal with the authorities.

Stunning photos of volcanic lightning

Photographer Martin Rietze witnessed the rare moment a lightning storm collided with an erupting stream of lava at Sakurajima Volcano in Japan.

Sakurajima Volcano in Japan. These lightstorm images were caught up close by photographer Martin Rietze who hunts out this exploding phemomena in active volcanoes across the world. PIC FROM MARTIN RIETZE / GUZELIAN
Lightning can be seen emerging through the lava eruption. Images were captured on February, 24 2013, around 4.50am, 3-4km east of the volcano in the Kaghoshima area of South Japan. PIC FROM MARTIN RIETZE / GUZELIAN
Rietze said: “I waited around four days for Sakurajima to produce repeated lightning events.” PIC FROM MARTIN RIETZE / GUZELIAN
Lightning only ever strikes a volcanic eruption during heavy ‘vulcanian’ or ‘plinian’ explosions when the amount of red lava is very low. PIC FROM MARTIN RIETZE / GUZELIAN
These flows are currents of hot gas and rock that reach temperatures of 1,000C and travel up to 500mph. However, ‘red volcanoes’ create meandering lava flows and pyrotechnic displays that can be viewed from relatively nearby. The magma wells up to form new land in the sea, such as Kilauea on Hawaii. “Here it is possible to have virtual contact with the volcano,” Rietze said. PIC FROM MARTIN RIETZE / GUZELIAN
When gas and magma builds up under the surface it eventually erupts above the surface through this gap, spewing rocks, lava and ash. The lava can reach 1,250c and burn everything in its path. PIC FROM MARTIN RIETZE / GUZELIAN
