Indonesian Volcanic Eruption Kills at Least 11
01 February 2014 / All photos: © ANP / submit to reddit
An Indonesian volcano that has been rumbling for months unleased a major eruption Saturday, killing 14 people just a day after authorities allowed thousands of villagers who had been evacuated to return to its slopes, saying that activity was decreasing, officials said.
Sinabung in western Sumatra has been erupting for four months, sending lava and searing gas and rocks rolling down its southern slopes. Authorities had evacuated more than 30,000 people, housing them in cramped tents, schools and public buildings. Many have been desperate to return to check on homes and farms, presenting a dilemma for the government.

I have to confess, that this is a part of a Dutch 'mainstream media', as it is one of the biggest news sites in Holland.. It has a big part in opinion in Holland (bit right winged) and it fights for freedom (in speech, on internet, by laws) and have picked up many stories that I find on ATS also. Maybe we are just a bit lucky for having this in The Netherlands.. Most of the other media are just copy-pasters...edit on 17-05-1983 by Goedhardt because: A cat said MOoooooo
