Exploding Volcano

Exploding Volcano

Clouds of ash, rock fragments and hot gas are spewing out of Mount Merapi in Indonesia, as the volcano has reached its highest level of activity in several weeks. While most nearby villages have been evacuated, a number of residents have refused to leave citing "citing ancient mystical beliefs as they attempt to assuage the volcano's fury with incense and ritual," writes Times Online(1). For more coverage, see BBC News(2) and Reuters(3).
