FILE - In a Monday, Jan. 17, 2011 file photo, gun violence protesters participate in a lie-in during an anti-gun rally at the Capitol in Richmond, Va. Nearly six in 10 Americans want stricter gun laws in the aftermath of last month's deadly school shooting in Connecticut, with majorities favoring a nationwide ban on military-style, rapid-fire weapons and limits on gun violence depicted in video games and movies and on TV, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. A lopsided 84 percent of adults would like to see the establishment of a federal standard for background checks for people buying guns at gun shows, the poll showed. President Barack Obama was set Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013 to unveil a wide-ranging package of steps for reducing gun violence expected to include a proposed ban on assault weapons, limits on the capacity of ammunition magazines and universal background checks for gun sales.

While Bardarbunga, located under Europe's largest glacier, had not yet started spewing ash as of early Friday, the release of a massive cloud remained a possible scenario with potentially dire consequences for aviation. Iceland's Meteorological Institute, charged with monitoring volcanic activity, raised the alert to the highest level of red after the eruption. "No volcanic ash has been detected by the radar system at the moment.
