The death toll from the eruption of Indonesia's Semeru volcano has gone up to 13, the country's National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) said on Sunday.
Semeru, located in Indonesia's East Java province, erupted on Saturday, emitting large amounts of volcanic ash into the atmosphere, wrecking homes and damaging a local strategic bridge. Initial local media reports said that at least one person died and 41 suffered burns.
There are over 120 active volcanoes in Indonesia, which is located in the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire and is thus prone to seismic impact.
