Latest Indonesia volcano eruption kills dozens

More than 50 people have been killed by the latest eruption of the Mount Merapi volcano in Indonesia, bringing the total number of dead to more than 100.

Dozens more are being treated for burns and breathing problems after a cloud of hot gas and ashes swept through nearby villages.

Around a hundred thousand people have been moved from the area but it is proving difficult to keep some of them away from the danger zone.

Alice Budisatrijo reports from Jakarta.
