    An erupting volcano in the Indonesian island of Bali, a popular tourist attraction, has forced thousands to evacuate areas under threat of what experts are calling a potential catastrophe.

    The city's international airport has been closed for a second consecutive day, stranding many tourists, as the volcano spewed massive ash clouds.

    Mount Agung last erupted in 1963, killing about 1,100 people.

    Al Jazeera's Natasha Ghoneim reports.
