A volcano in Indonesia's East Nusa Tenggara province erupted on Sunday, spewing ash and smoke as high as four kilometers into the sky and forcing more than 2,700 residents to seek refuge, the country's disaster mitigation agency said. Indonesia has nearly 130 active volcanoes, more than any other country, and while many show high levels of activity it can be weeks or even months before an eruption. Raditya Jati, a spokesman for the agency, said in a statement that the eruption from the Mt. Ile Lewotolok volcano, about 2,600 kilometers east of Indonesia's capital of Jakarta, had caused panic among those living nearby.

The World Health Organization delivered 15 ventilators to Gaza hospitals on Sunday amid a spike in COVID-19 infections that has tested the Palestinian territory's under-developed health system. The donation of the intensive care devices, funded by Kuwait, came a week after local and international public health advisers said hospitals in the enclave could soon become overwhelmed. "These devices will help medical teams provide better service to patients, but it is not enough," said Abdullatif Alhaj of Gaza's health ministry.

A team of animal experts began the task on Sunday of airlifting Pakistan's lonely elephant Kaavan on the long journey to his new home at a sanctuary in northwestern Cambodia, marking the culmination of years of campaigning by American singer Cher. Cher, who has written songs calling for Kaavan to be rescued from his grim and lonely conditions at Islamabad Zoo, is due to meet the elephant upon its arrival in Cambodia after she spent the last few days with him in Islamabad. On Sunday morning, dozens of wildlife workers and experts led by animal rescue organisation Four Paws used a winch and rope to pull the sedated elephant into a custom-designed crate in which he will be transported to the Cambodian city of Siem Reap.

More than 10,000 turkeys are set to be culled at a farm in North Yorkshire in an effort to contain an outbreak of Avian influenza, the Government has confirmed. A 3km and 10km “temporary control zone” has been imposed around a turkey fattening premises near Northallerton, after a highly pathogenic strain of H5N8 was detected on Saturday. The strain has recently been identified on several farms in Europe and led to the culling of more than 13,000 chickens in Cheshire earlier this month, but poses little risk to human health or food safety. According to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) H5N8 has also been identified in wild birds in Gloucestershire, Devon, Dorset, Lancashire and Lincolnshire, with reports last week that swans had been found spinning in circles and discharging blood from their nostrils. Christine Middlemiss, England's Chief Veterinary Officer, said on Sunday that “immediate steps have been taken to limit the risk of the disease spreading” in North Yorkshire, the source of which remains unclear. She added that all 10,500 birds at the farm will be humanely culled. Defra has said it does not anticipate any impact on the supplies of turkeys or other birds in the lead up to Christmas. “Bird keepers should remain alert for any signs of disease, report suspected disease immediately and ensure they are maintaining good biosecurity on their premises,” Prof Middlemiss said. “We are urgently looking for any evidence of disease spread associated with this farm to control and eliminate it.” The H5N8 flu influenza virus is highly pathogenic – meaning that it leads to more severe disease rather than it being more easily transmissible – and the number of outbreaks has increased in recent years. The last epidemic hit 29 European countries in 2016-17, including the UK, and led to the culling of millions of poultry across the continent. In Germany alone 900,000 birds were killed. But there is currently no evidence that the virus is a threat to humans. “To date the World Health Organisation has never confirmed any cases of H5N8 in humans and the risk to the public is considered very low,” said Dr Gavin Dabrera, Consultant in Acute Respiratory Infections at Public Health England. A Food Standards Agency spokesperson added that properly cooked poultry and poultry products, including eggs, remain safe to eat. Dr Holly Shelton, an expert in influenza viruses at the Pirbright Institute, told the Telegraph last week that “there are no characteristics in H5N8 that give us cause for concern that it might jump from person to person”. “But we still have to treat the viruses with care as the likelihood of them adapting will increase if they make small jumps into individuals,” she added. The latest outbreak comes after Defra declared an avian influenza prevention zone across England, Scotland and Wales earlier this month, meaning it is now a legal requirement for all bird keepers to follow strict biosecurity measures. Anyone with more than 500 birds must restrict access to their site and ensure that vehicles, footwear and clothing are disinfected regularly.

Ethiopia's government launched a manhunt on Sunday (November 29) for leaders of a rebellious faction in Tigray after announcing that federal forces had taken control of the northern region's capital, and that the conflict was over. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed said an offensive on Mekelle had been successful within a few hours of being launched and that federal police were now pursuing "criminals" from the powerful Tigrayan People's Liberation Front party. But TPLF leader Debretsion Gebremichael says his troops will fight on because this was an issue of, quote, "our right to self-determination". Regional diplomats and experts have warned that a rapid military victory might not signal the end of the conflict and the TPLF has a long history of guerrilla resistance. Thousands are estimated to have died since fighting erupted on November 4, and nearly 44,000 have fled to Sudan. In a border camp on Saturday (November 28), the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said that while refugees are uncomfortable with living in exile, their biggest fear is intercommunal violence when they return. "This is why I think that going forward, it will be important for the government of Ethiopia to re-establish peace and to have a silence of the guns, but also to ensure there are no retaliation or reprisals between communities because this is what many have mentioned to me as a primary source of fear." Six explosions were reported in Asmara, the capital of neighboring Eritrea, on Saturday night according to the U.S. State Department. It was not clear if they were related to the Tigray conflict, but Tigrayan forces have previously fired rockets into Eritrea who they accuse of sending troops in support of the Ethiopian military. The conflict has been a major test for Abiy, who took office two years ago and is trying to hold together a patchwork of ethnic groups that make up Ethiopia's 115 million people.
Colombia must restart aerial fumigation of coca with the herbicide glyphosate as soon as possible to reduce cocaine production, income for illegal armed groups, massacres and the killings of human rights activists, the defense minister said. The Andean country, a top producer of cocaine, suspended aerial fumigation with glyphosate in 2015 on concerns by the World Health Organization (WHO) it may cause cancer.
"This is a very significant week, the last real major week subject to any further postponement," Raab told the BBC. He said negotiations were down to their final two basic issues and a deal was possible if the EU showed some pragmatism. Face-to-face negotiations between Britain and the European Union over a trade deal restarted on Saturday (November 28) as the two sides make a last ditch attempt to reach an agreement with just five weeks to go before their current relationship ends. EU negotiator Michel Barnier arrived in London on Saturday morning and said talks to find a deal with Britain were continuing into Sunday (November 29).
