Sisters reunited 30 years after volcano separated them

Two sisters who were separated as young girls when an avalanche caused by a volcano destroyed their home town in Colombia have been reunited 30 years on.

The eruption in Armero killed more than 20,000 people.

The sisters were adopted by different families and did not know what had happened to each other - until now.
