Philippines: lava gushes from Taal volcano as alert level raised

Red-hot lava has gushed out of a volcano in the Philippines after a sudden eruption of ash and steam that forced villagers to flee en masse and shut down the country’s main airport, offices and schools.

Clouds of ash blew more than 62 miles (100km) north of the Taal volcano, reaching the bustling capital, Manila, and forcing the the international main airport to close and cancel more than 500 flights.

There have been no reports of casualties or major damage from the eruption that began Sunday.
