Indonesia’s most active volcano spews huge ash cloud 6,000m into the air

A huge ash cloud about 6,000m (20,000ft) high spewed into the air as Mount Merapi  near Indonesia’s cultural capital Yogyakarta erupted.
Ash mixed with sand rained down on towns as far as 10km (six miles) from the belching crater, coating nearby communities with grey dust and prompting authorities to temporarily shut the international airport in Solo city, also known as Surakarta.
