Images of villagers in western Indonesia fleeing from a volcanic ash cloud, as an eruption kills 14 people.
Indonesian villagers have been forced to flee from an erupting volcano on Sumatra island.
Mount Sinabung erupted three times, spewing clouds of ash and hot rocks 2km into the air.
The eruption killed at least 14 people, among them a group of schoolchildren on a sightseeing trip.
The volcano has been rumbling since 2010, and thousands of people have been evacuated.
Before the 2010 eruption, the volcano had been dormant for 400 years.
