Bali volcano alert raised to highest level
Fears of an imminent major eruption of Bali's Mount Agung have increased and the evacuation zone around the volcano has been widened. Indonesian authorities have raised the state of alert to its highest level. The island's airport has now closed, leaving thousands stranded in the tourist hotspot. Authorities say dark smoke and ash have been billowing up to 3,400m (11,150ft) above the mountain's summit, which has also been emitting fire.
