A volcano has erupted on Indonesia's western island of Sumatra, killing at least 11 people, officials have said.

Mount Sinabung, which has been active with low-level eruptions for months, spewed clouds of hot ash into the air, engulfing nearby villages. Emergency official Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said a group of schoolchildren on a sightseeing trip were among the dead.

The volcano began to rumble last September after being dormant for three years.


Shame about the school kids and the other deaths too

I`m just hoping that it`s not too destructive. Sumatra is home to some of the most endagered animals like the Sumatran Tiger and the Orangutaun.

It's been active for a while, so it's kind of surprice me it took life this time.

This is some of the pyroclastic flows it has released a little over a week ago, you won't like to get cought up in those.

I wonder if Indonesia will run to Australia for help after harming them and threatening military action? Lol, it wouldn't surprise me...

I do feel for the people though. I hope no one else succumbs to the volcanic eruptions. That goes for the animals too!

Daas.
