Thousands flee Sumatra as eruptions continue

The crisis at Mount Sinabung worsens as volcanic eruptions force thousands to abandon their homes and businesses.

    Thick volcanic ash has damaged dozens of houses near Mount Sinabung in Indonesia.

    The volcano had been dormant for four centuries before it started erupting four months ago.

    Now, more than 25,000 people are being forced to flee their homes and leave their livelihoods behind.
