At least 25 killed as Guatemala’s Fuego volcano erupts

At least 25 people were killed when Guatemala's Fuego volcano erupted Sunday, belching ash and rock and forcing the airport to close, the country's disaster agency said. Search and rescue operations for the missing and dead have been suspended due to low light and dangerous conditions, and will resume this morning, the spokesman said. The eruption sent ash billowing over the surrounding area, turning plants and trees gray and blanketing streets, cars and people. Farmers covered in ash fled for their lives as civil defense staffers tried to relocate them to shelters during the event.
