At least 14 people are dead and hundreds are displaced after Mount Semeru, a volcano in Indonesia's East Java province, erupted on Saturday 4 December, authorities said.
Many villages in Lumajang, in East Java, were coated in volcanic ash. At least 56 people have been injured, with many suffering burns after they mistook the hot mud flow for flooding.
The head of Indonesia's geological agency said heavy rain fall on the lip of Mt Semeru's crater caused it to partially collapse, triggering the eruption. There had been no increase in seismicity to suggest any change in magma flow it was reported.
Emergency teams and rescue dogs are looking for survivors and bodies in the debris. The operation has been complicated by dangerous conditions and bad weather in the area. The volcano remains active, with smaller eruptions continuing.
