Spanish Canary Islands volcano eruption intensifies
The eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano on the Spanish island of La Palma has intensified.
It has already prompted the evacuation of 6,000 people, and destroyed nearly a thousand homes.
As the central vent widens, new threats appear. Exploding gas bubbles send lethal projectiles, called lava bombs, hurtling into the sky.
Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from La Palma, Spain.
