Colombian volcano spews ash and gas
The Volcanic Observatory in Manizales said a plume of ash and gas from Nevado del Ruiz rose to a height of 2,000m (6,500ft) on Sunday.

Scientists at the observatory warned there was a risk of an eruption “within days or weeks”.

More than 25,000 people died in a mudslide caused by Nevado del Ruiz in its last eruption in 1985.

Officials have distributed 30,000 face masks to residents living in areas affected by ash from the volcano.
