Eruption

Thousands Flee Indonesian Volcano

Thousands of people fled down the slopes of Mount Lokon, a central Indonesian volcano, that erupted violently late last night. Lava flowing down the mountain's western slope set fire to forests. More than 6,000 evacuees are living in schools and churches, and authorities say another 27,000 people living near the crater will have to be moved. One woman died of a heart attack as she fled.
