Guatemala volcano: Dozens die as fuego volcano erupts

Dozens more are missing in fuego volcano, the country's disaster agency says, and it is feared the death toll could rise. Villages on the slopes of Fuego volcano were buried in volcanic ash, mud and rocks during Sunday's 16-hour eruption.

Pyroclastic flows, which are fast-moving mixtures of very hot gas and volcanic matter, rushed down the mountainside and engulfed villages. President Jimmy Morales has declared three days of national mourning.

A further pyroclastic flow on Monday sparked alarm. Guatemala's coast has also been hit by an earthquake and also fuego volcano though there are no reports of damage so far.
