Mount Etna erupted in Italy

Mount Etna, the most active volcano in Europe, erupted again, lighting up the sky over much of eastern Sicily and throwing up in the air high column of ash.

The eruption, which began on Saturday night, but gradually began to break on Sunday morning, did not threaten any of the villages on the slopes of the mountain, so the evacuation was performed.

At the airport near Catania said that the two sectors of the airspace over the volcano have been closed to flights, but the airport itself was working normally, carrying out the ups and taking the aircraft on landing.

Mount Etna erupts occasionally. Its last major eruption was in 1992.
