Indonesia's Mount Merapi has begun to erupt, spewing searing clouds of volcanic ash and rocks into the sky, the country's chief volcanologist has said. The mountain, which had been rumbling for hours, started to erupt just before dusk on Tuesday, a day after the agency raised the alert status to the highest level.
