Indonesian volcano erupts again

Nation struggles to help tsunami survivors off western Sumatra and people living in Merapi's shadow.


    Indonesia's most volatile volcano continues to spew ash on the island of Java.

    Mount Merapi is known to erupts every few years mostly releasing hot gas clouds and rocks.

    The last major eruption was in 1939 when more than 1400 people died.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports on the new eruptions at Merapi on Friday, whose ash and lava have already killed 33 people.
