Ammon News - The death toll from the eruption of the Semeru volcano on Indonesia’s Java island has risen to 13, according to the country’s disaster mitigation agency.

In a statement on Sunday, the Agency’s spokesperson Abd Muhari said that 10 people trapped after the eruption had been evacuated to safety. "Ninety-eight were injured, including two pregnant women, and 902 have been evacuated," he added.

Mount Semeru, the highest volcano on Indonesia’s most densely populated island of Java, spewed thick columns of ash more than 12,000 meters into the sky on Saturday, with searing gas and lava flowing down its slopes and triggering panic among people living nearby.
