Iceland: Volcanic eruption near Reykjavik

Not far from the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, the Fagradalsfjall volcano has erupted. According to the Meteorological Service of the island state, only slight seismological shocks were measured on Saturday night. Nevertheless, the surface of the volcano cracked over a length of 500 metres and small lava fountains sprayed upwards. A glowing stream of liquid rock poured out along the mountain flanks, reportedly reaching a size of about one square kilometre.
