Java's Mount Merapi erupts claiming more casualties

Dozens of people have been killed by the eruption of a volcano in Java. Clouds of hot gas and ash cascaded down from Mount Merapi, destroying villages and forcing residents to flee.

It's more than a week since the eruption began, and volcanologists say they have no idea how long it will continue.

The volcano lies on the outskirts of Yogyakarta city in Central Java.
