BALI: 120000 people flee as volcano threatens to blow

More than 120,000 people have fled the area around Bali’s highest volcano amid fears it could erupt imminently.

Hundreds of tremors are being recorded daily at Mount Agung, which is said to have entered a “critical phase”.

Officials said around 122,500 people have been evacuated from the region and given shelter in temporary camps, sports centres and hundreds of other public buildings on the Indonesian island.

Since Friday, the volcano has been at its highest alert level – prompting authorities to establish a 7.5 mile exclusion zone.

More than 1,100 people were killed the last time Mount Agung erupted in 1963.
