Soldiers are helping firefighters search for missing people after Sunday's horrific volcanic eruption in Guatemala when torrents of superheated rock, ash, and mud destroyed villages.
 
The official death toll from the destruction at the Fuego volcano has risen to 62, the authorities say.
 
Thousands of people are being housed in temporary shelters.
 
Volcanologists report the eruption, which sent ash up to 10km (33,000ft) into the sky, is now over.
 
The eruption also generated pyroclastic flows - fast-moving mixtures of very hot gas and volcanic matter - descending down the slopes, engulfing communities such as El Rodeo and San Miguel Los Lotes.
