Video: Mount Etna erupts
Monday 30 December 2013
Mount Etna on the island of Sicily has erupted, releasing a colourful display of lava.
Lava was seen pouring from the south east crater of the Italian volcano early this morning and sending ash soaring into the sky.
It is the Europe's most active volcano and this is not the first time it has erupted, the latest activity has been going on for weeks now.
However, it is not dangerous and apart from causing some changes in flight paths it has not caused any damage.
The snow-capped mountain has been particularly active over the past few months due to a new crater that has been formed on one side.
Mount Etna has erupted several times this month and this was the 20th time the volcano erupted this year. But there has not been a major eruption since 1992.
