Indonesia's Mount Semeru volcano threatens to erupt again

The footage from December 19 shows a cloud of smoke hanging above the peak of the highest volcano on Java island and there are fears of an avalanche of lava and searing gas. Authorities on Saturday raised the alert level, warning that Mount Semeru could blow up again after a sudden eruption earlier in December left 48 people dead.
