Death toll rises to 16 from Indonesia volcano

Published: 02.02.14, 07:54 / Israel News

The death toll from an Indonesian volcano that has been rumbling for months rose to 16 Sunday after rescuers found another charred corpse and a critically injured college student died in a hospital, officials said.

 

Mount Sinabung erupted again Saturday just a day after authorities allowed thousands of villagers who had been evacuated to return to
its slopes, saying volcanice activity was decreasing. Rescuers found 14 bodies and rescued three people with burn wounds, said National Disaster Mitigation Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.

 

Rescue efforts resumed Sunday and rescuers found another body about three kilometers from the volcano's peak, said Lt. Col. Asep Sukarna, who led the operation. Another resident, a 24-year-old college student died in an intensive care unit, said an official at the Efarina Etaham hospital.(AP)
