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.
