Thousands of people were evacuated and airports were closed as two volcanoes erupted in Guatemala and Ecuador, choking major cities with ash, and leaving two dead, officials say.
Guatemalan president Alvaro Colom declared a 15-day state of emergency around the Pacaya volcano, 50 kilometres south of the capital.
The volcano erupted again on Friday after first bursting back to life on Wednesday, killing two people, including a television reporter covering the event.
