    Revellers throw tomatoes during the annual "Tomatina" (tomato fight) in the Mediterranean village of Bunol, near Valencia, August 31. The origin of the tomato fight is disputed - everyone in Bunol seems to have a favorite story - but most agree it started around 1940, in the early years of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship

    When you think of taking a cruise, usually it's the Bahamas, Fiji or the Maldives that generally come to mind. How about North Korea?

    On Tuesday, the mysterious state launched itself into the glitzy world of cruise tourism when about 130 passengers set sail from the rundown port of Rajin, near the China-Russia border, for the scenic Mount Kumgang resort near the South Korean border.

    Belarussians wait in line to buy meat at considerably cheaper prices than at the market, in front of the closed door of a shop before it opens in Minsk on Aug. 31. Belarus is mired in its worst financial crisis since the fall of the Soviet Union. The government devalued the ruble by some 50 percent this year, causing panic buying of staples and huge lines at foreign exchange offices. Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko says the ex-Soviet nation will allow a free float of its currency in mid-September.

    Two other US airmen were seriously injured in the attack on an air force bus in March.

    "What I did was wrong, but I cannot undo what I did," Mr Uka told the court in Frankfurt at the opening of his trial.

    Prosecutors said he had wanted to kill the airmen because they were going to join the Nato-led force in Afghanistan.

    "Regret" is NOT good enough Arid! I hope they throw the book at you using the full extend of the law. Also, please note there is no apology mentionerd anywhere. He deserves what he is getting. - Amina

    Dale Marshall is dwarfed by an Atlantic Giant Pumpkin that he estimates to be around 1,780-pounds inside a greenhouse in Anchorage on Aug. 29. The giant pumpkin was started by seed on April 1 and has a 202-inch circumference. He plans to enter the pumpkin in the Alaska State Fair during the weigh-off on Wednesday in Palmer. Marshall holds the state record with a 1,101 pound pumpkin that he entered in the state fair last year.
