Searching for bodies of Indonesia volcano victims

The three bodies were among a family of nine that went missing after the dramatic eruption of Mount Semeru on Saturday (December 4), a search and rescue official said.

By Monday, the death toll had risen to 15, while 27 people remain missing, Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency said in a statement. More than 50 people had suffered injuries from the eruption, mostly burns.

In addition, the head of the Semeru Volcano Observatory, Liswanto, warned people to keep a safe distance from the mountain, amid reports that anxious residents had returned to their homes to check on belongings and livestock.
