Volcano eruption in Indonesia kills 6 people
August 11 , 2013
An erupting volcano in Indonesia killed six people who were sleeping in the beach village. The authorities had evacuated nearly half of the population on the island and activities had been banned within that zone.
The eruption sent lava gushing and blasted ash about 6,500 feet in the air.
Victims included two children and three adults. The age of the sixth victim is unknown and the children's bodies have not been recovered from the site.
The eruption had been on high alert since October last year.
