Italy’s highest volcano Mount Etna in Catania, in the east of Sicily, erupted lava and ash on Monday, after reawakening in late July. The eruption has not prompted any evacuations on the island, although lava and rocks were being shot as high as 150 metres (492 ft) into the air. An eruption in March 2017 injured 10 people after a magma explosion. Etna, which is the largest of Italy’s three active volcanoes and the biggest in Europe, sits at 3,330 metres high (11,000 ft).
