Volcano clouds Icelandic skies again


Iceland’s most active volcano has erupted again shutting the county’s airspace.

Grimsvertn in southeast Iceland has hurled white smoke some 20 kilometres into the air but officials are downplaying the chance of a repeat of last year’s travel chaos.

In March last year, another volcano under the Eyjafjallajokul glacier erupted, spewing out a massive ash cloud and shutting large parts of European airspace.

Authorities feared dust particles could damage aircraft engines.

An estimated 10 million people had their travel plans disrupted by the eruption.
