Lava Flow

About 150 people in Chile had to leave their homes for the second year running after a volcano started erupting. The Chaiten volcano had lain dormant for 9,000 years before it roared back to life last May.

Thousands of people left the area as ash covered the town and choked the river, causing flooding. People had returned to their homes, but some are having to leave again after the eruptions on Thursday. The volcano is 10km from the town.

Deputy Interior Minister Patricio Rosende said experts had seen an increase in the size of a column of ash and smoke. He said the volcano was a "time-bomb.”
