    In Indonesia, more than 70,000 people face an uncertain future as they continue living in evacuation shelters after Mount Agung volcano began erupting in early November.

    As the eruption danger enters a third month, many are returning to the danger zone every day to tend to their crops and livestock.

    Local authorities are struggling to keep them away from danger.
