    A volcano in northeastern Tanzania is showing signs it may erupt.

    The Ol Doinyo Lengai - called the 'Mountain of God' by the Masai people - is the only known active volcano with lava that can move faster than a person.

    It's now threatening nearby villages and three major sites of early human development.
