Indonesia's Mount Merapi Erupts, Killing 30
The volcano continues to spew ash over the surrounding area, but rescue crews have converged on the area looking for those who were injured or killed in the eruption. Some people refused to leave the danger zone, despite warnings from volcanologists of an impending eruption. That included the so-called spiritual guardian of the volcano.
He died in the eruption, along with at least 30 others.
