Death toll from volcano rises as returning villagers caught by renewed eruption

Indonesia: The death toll from an Indonesian volcano that has been rumbling for months rose to 16 yesterday after rescuers found another charred corpse and a critically injured university student died in a hospital.

Mt Sinabung erupted again on Saturday, just a day after authorities allowed thousands of villagers who had been evacuated to return to its slopes, saying volcanic activity was decreasing.
