Mount Marapi: Eleven hikers killed as volcano erupts in Indonesia


Eleven hikers have been found dead near the crater of Indonesia’s Marapi volcano after it erupted over the weekend, rescuers said. Three people were rescued on Monday. The search for 12 others missing has been suspended due to a small eruption. There were 75 hikers in the area at the time of the eruption, but most were safely evacuated. Mount Marapi, one of Indonesia’s 127 active volcanoes, spewed ash as high as 3km (9,800ft) into the air on Sunday.
