Mount Etna rumblings return with new crater opening


Rome, April 10 - Mount Etna, the volcano on the
east coast of the Italian island of Sicily, continued releasing
ash amid explosive activity from a new crater that formed on its
south-east peak.
The volcanic material falling at regular 10-15 minute
intervals does not constitute "real eruptions, but rather a slow
alternate release of energy", according to the Italian
Geophysics Institute (INGV).
The volcanic activity "will not lead to limitations or
reductions in air traffic" for the nearby Catania airport,
according to local officials.
Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, has erupted
nine times since the start of the year.
