    Yet another flow of molten mud and ash from the Fuego volcano in Guatemala has forced emergency teams to abandon their search for survivors.

    They have given up hope of finding anyone else alive after last Sunday's eruption killed at least 100 people.

    Nearly 200 are missing and thousands of homes are destroyed.
