Indonesia Volcano Claims Lives For The First Time
Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung volcano erupted and killed at least 11 people on the western island of Sumatra on Saturday. A senior government official said it is the first time it is known to have claimed any lives. The volcano has becoming increasingly active in recent months, regularly spewing columns of ash several kilometers into the air. The government has evacuated tens of thousands of residents near the area. “Eleven people were killed because of the eruption this morning and the number could increase. No evacuations could be made at this stage because of the potential for more eruptions.” Andi Arief, a presidential staff member, told Reuters.
