World’s Abandoned Places

In this Oct 17, 2014, photo, Mount Sinabung is framed by a crumbling building in the abandoned village of Simacem village, North Sumatra, Indonesia. The village was abandoned after its people were evacuated following the eruption of the volcano. Sinabung, among about 130 active volcanoes in Indonesia, has sporadically erupted since 2010 after being dormant for 400 years. More than 22,000 people were evacuated from the area around the 2,600-meter (8,530-foot) volcano after the eruptions earlier this year that killed at least 16 people. Most have returned home, but about 4,700 remain in evacuation centers. (AP Photo/Binsar Bakkara)
