Guatemala's Fuego Volcano Disaster: Latest Updates

Authorities in Guatemala say the death toll from the devastating volcano eruption has climbed to 75.

The national disaster agency, Conred, says 192 people are missing after the Fuego volcano erupted for the first time in more than four decades on Sunday.

The seismological, volcanic and meteorological institute, Insivumeh, heightened its warnings after the volcano erupted again on Tuesday, forcing evacuations and sending rescue workers scrambling for cover.

Volcan de Fuego, or Volcano of Fire, spewed a 10km-long stream of red-hot lava and shot out a thick plume of black smoke and ash on Sunday that rained down onto several regions and the capital, Guatemala City, 30km away from the hardest-hit area.
