People ‘unaccounted for’ after volcano erupts in New Zealand – BBC News

A volcano has erupted in New Zealand with 100 people in the vicinity – leaving some unaccounted for, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said.

Tourists were seen walking inside the rim of the White Island crater just moments before the eruption.

The local mayor told New Zealand media she feared there had been injuries.

White Island, or Whakaari, is off the coast of North Island – and is one the country’s most active volcanoes.

Despite that, the island is a tourist destination with frequent day tours and scenic flights available.

A live feed from the volcano showed a group of visitors inside the crater before images went dark after the eruption.
