Bali: Experts warn volcanic eruption imminent

Science Editor

A hundred thousand people living around the Mount Agung volcano on Bali have been told to evacuate their homes – as experts warned that a large eruption could be imminent.
The mountain has been spewing large clouds of volcanic ash thousands of feet into the sky for several days – but Indonesian authorities have now raised the alert warning to its highest level. Airports have closed – leaving thousands of holidaymakers stranded on the island.
