    At least 15 people have been killed after the eruption of Mount Nyiragongo on Saturday night.

    Lave from the eruption covered dozens of homes in Goma, eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, and tremors were felt there on Sunday, raising concerns of further lava flows.

    The government has promised to help, but people here do not expect much, saying the authorities failed to issue a warning, in spite of detecting seismic movements earlier this month.
