JAKARTA, Indonesia - An active volcano on Indonesia's Lombok island
has spewed lava and hot ash nearly 4,000 feet (1,200 metres) into the
sky but poses no immediate threat to local villagers.
Surono, director of Indonesia's Volcanology Agency, said the Tuesday eruption followed four smaller eruptions on Friday.


Surono
said the nearest village is several miles (kilometres) away from the
7,795-foot (2,376-meter) Mount Barujari and is not threatened.

Surono, who uses only one name, said Barujari has shown mild activity for the last two years.
Indonesia
is the world's largest archipelago nation. It is located on the
so-called Pacific "Ring of Fire," an arc of volcanos and fault lines
encircling the Pacific Basin.
