Challenges await Merapi survivors

Indonesians evacuated during Mount Merapi eruptions return home to find villages devastated.

    Hundreds of thousands of villagers forced to flee a series of volcanic eruptions from Indonesia's Mount Merapi are returning to their homes.

    The eruptions in October and November killed more than a 100 people and covered many towns and villages with volcanic ash.

    Al Jazeera's Step Vaessan reports from Mount Merapi on the challenges they face returning to their devastated villages.
