At least fifteen people died as Mount Sinabung erupted at the weekend. Indonesian authorities warned the death toll could rise as people are still reported missing. Although the volcano has been active since September, forcing some 27,000 local villagers to flee their homes, it is the first time lives have been claimed. The 8,530ft volcano has been spewing ash and lava into the air, blanketing the surrounding villages with thick grey ash. There are 130 volcanoes in Indonesia, which sits on a volcanic belt known as 'The Ring of Fire' in the Pacific.
