June 4, 2018 -- Zeker 25 mensen zijn omgekomen en bijna 300 gewond toen kort voor het middaguur de Guatemalaanse vulkaan Fuego een stroom van 8 km gesmolten lava uitspuwde.

Rescuers have struggled to reach rural residents cut off by the eruption, the Associated Press reports. Authorities have been unable to account for an undetermined number of people and say they fear the death toll could rise.

The Volcan de Fuego, or “volcano of fire,” exploded in a hail of ash and molten rock, blanketing nearby villages in heavy ash. It then began sending lava flows down the mountain’s flank and across homes and roads.

The eruption forced Guatemala City’s La Aurora international airport to shut down its main runway due to the presence of volcanic ash.
