Mount Etna blasts lava and ash high into sky

Mount Etna, the volcano on the Italian island of Sicily, has erupted in spectacular fashion.

Etna sent a plume of fire and ash into the sky, several kilometres high.

The eruption caused the closure of the nearest airport on the Italian mainland and left several villages covered in a thick layer of ash.
