Mount Etna erupts in Sicily

Italy’s Mount Etna put on a spectacular show Thursday, shooting lava and molten rock into the night sky.

Authorities on the island of Sicily closed nearby airports as smoke and steam floated across the sky and boiling hot lava flowed down the side of the volcano. No injuries have been reported.

Mount Etna is more than 3,000 meters high (about 9,840 feet) and is Europe’s largest active volcano.
