Indonesia, Nov 11: Mount Merapi, Indonesia volatile volcanic mountain, erupted yet again spewing hot ash and black clouds of smoke into the sky.

The new eruption comes even as the death toll due to the previous eruptions soared to 191. The mountain, located in the heart of Java island, first erupted two weeks ago.

The first eruption, which claimed over 30 lives, came at a time when the country was reeling under the after-effects of an earthquake-triggered tsunami, which, by then, had claimed hundreds of lives.

Since it roared back to life two weeks ago, the mountain has erupted several times. The volcano has so far sent 350,000 people fleeing from the vicinity to seek refuge in emergency shelters.

With more ash blackening the skies and hindering visibility, several international airlines have yet again cancelled flights to Jakarta.
