    Kashmiri men arrive at a dock with their belongings at Dal Lake in Srinagar June 10, 2011. The Lake region's main tourist attraction, which has drawn visitors from Mughal emperors to Beatles star George Harrison, has shrunk from 25 square km to 13 square km (9.65-5.02 square miles) since 1980 because of the separatist rebellion, neglect by authorities, silt, weeds and other developments, Kashmiri environmentalists say.

    FILE - In this Aug. 3, 2010 file photo an arch-like fragment of a heating system and remnants of a chimney are all that is left of a wooden house destroyed by fire in the village of Kadanok, 90 miles (150 kilometers) southeast of Moscow, Russia. A devastating wave of wildfires across Russia could ravage millions of acres of forests and cause worse damage than last year's catastrophic blazes, environmentalists and officials said Thursday June 9 2011. In 2010, an unprecedented heat-wave triggered fires that killed 55 people, destroyed thousands of houses and 2.6 million hectares (6.4 million acres) of forests, an area slightly larger than Oregon.
