At least 192 people are missing and 75 are dead as a result of the explosion of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala on Sunday, officials say.
 
Villages on the slopes were buried in volcanic ash and mud.
 
Rescue work on Tuesday was disrupted when a new eruption sent hot gas and molten rock streaming down the volcano's south side.
 
More than 1.7 million people have been affected by Sunday's eruption, with more than 3,000 evacuated.
 
Yesterday's explosion took many by surprise after volcanologists said the eruption, which had sent ash up to 10km into the sky on Sunday, was over for the near future.
 
Eddy Sanchez, the head of Guatemala's National Institute of Seismology, had predicted "no imminent eruption over the next few days".
