Eruption in central Japan kills eight


Mount Ontake in central Japan erupted on Saturday, seriously injuring at least eight people, and stranding some 250 hikers at 3000 metres altitude. Another seven people were knocked unconscious.

Visibility remains poor and authorities fear the casualty list could grow as the extent of the eruption becomes clearer.
