Two people have been killed in the Indonesian island of Java, after a massive volcano erupted last night.
Mount Kelud began erupting last night, spewing huge amounts of ash and sand 10 miles into the air, and forcing several airports to close. The volcano is 54 south of Indonesia's second biggest city Surabaya, a major industrial centre.
National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Nugroho said the eruptions had ceased by the ash had spread 312 miles to the west and northwest.
Mount Kelud is one of 130 active volcanoes in the world's fourth most populous country, which sits along the "Ring of Fire" volcanic belt around the shores of the Pacific Ocean
Flights across Java in Indonesia have been grounded and seven airports have been closed after a volcanic eruption yesterday evening.
Seven airports across Indonesia's most densely populated island have been closed, and thousands of passengers remain stranded.
The only major airports still operating on Java are two in the capital, Jakarta.
More than 100,000 people have fled their homes in Indonesia's most densely populated island of Java following the eruption of Mount Kelud.
The volcanic eruption sent a huge plume of ash and sand 10 miles into the air, officials said. National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Nugroho said:
"Over 100,000 people have been evacuated and about 200,000 people were affected.
"There are some people in the 10-km (6-mile) radius but they are being evacuated now so that area is empty."
