New fissures open in Icelandic volcano

Eyewitness video shot from a helicopter captured lava spewing from one of the new openings and flowing down to form a new lava pool.

The fissures, near the original site of the eruption on March 19, measure 200 metres in total, said the Icelandic Met Office.

Since its eruption, the volcano has attracted thousands of visitors and people have hiked to the mountain to see the rare lava fountains.
