A volcano has erupted on the Indonesian island of Java, killing 15 people and forcing many to flee their homes.
Mount Merapi in central Java erupted several times on Tuesday evening. Volcanic smoke was seen rising to a height of about 1,500 meters.
A military official in charge of a search unit told local media that 14 bodies were found in a village on the south side of the volcano that was hit by lava stream.
A 3-month-old baby died in a hospital after developing breathing difficulties.
Thirty-seven people were brought to hospital with burns and other injuries.
The 2,978-meter mountain is one of Indonesia's most active volcanoes. Increased volcanic activity forced the Indonesian government to raise its alert to the highest level on Monday. Local authorities have issued an evacuation advisory for about 20,000 people.
Mount Merapi last erupted in 2006, killing 2 people.
An eruption in 1994 claimed more than 60 lives and a massive eruption in 1930 left more than 1,000 people dead.
