POPOCATEPETL, the volcano near Mexico City, is spouting ash, vapour and red-hot rock, civil defence authorities in the region said yesterday.

At least one explosion erupted from the mountain yesterday, and although incandescent rock fell on the upper slopes of Popocatepetl - Aztec for "smoking mountain" - the National Centre for Disaster Prevention said there were no reports of ash falling on nearby communities.
