Indonesia’s Mount Merapi volcano killed 64 people and injured dozens when it erupted again on Friday, with scores more suffering severe burns and breathing problems.
The latest deaths bring the overall toll to more than 100 since the country’s most active volcano started erupting on October 26. An estimated 75,000 residents have been evacuated from the area.
