Indonesia volcano erupts again after long dormancy


After four-hundred years of silence a volcano in Indonesia has erupted for the third time in less than a week.

The latest tremor from Mount Sinabung is the strongest yet, it woke local residents from their sleep in the early hours of the morning.

More than 20,000 have been evacuated from the area around the volcano.
