Mount Sinabung: Volcano in Indonesia has 3rd eruption in 3 months

Mount Sinabung in Indonesia has erupted spitting volcanic ash five kilometers up into the sky. It is the third time the volcano has erupted in the past few months. The volcano, which is located 88 kilometers from the city of Medan, had been inactive for four centuries before erupting again in August 2010. Almost 2,500 people have been evacuated from local villages as experts warn the volcano could erupt again at any moment. Indonesia has 130 active volcanoes and straddles the infamous Pacific Ring of Fire. Report by Jessica Savage. (ITN)
