At least 13 killed, scores injured in violent volcano eruption

Over a dozen people were killed and nearly 100 residents were injured after a volcano erupted on the Indonesian island of Java. The eruption, which occurred during a rainstorm, saw mud flows cutting off roads and destroying homes.
Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency has confirmed the death of 13 people as result of the eruption of Semeru volcano that began spewing ash on Saturday, blocking the sun completely at one point.
The eruption coincided with heavy rains, and saw ash turning into thick mud and obliterating a key bridge and homes on its path. Gladak Perak Bridge, a local landmark connecting two villages, was reported to have been completely destroyed by the mudflows.
