Several tourists have reportedly been injured as Mount Etna erupted for the third time in just under three weeks, spitting molten lava nearly 650 feet into the sky above Sicily.

A BBC journalist and camera crew were caught in the huge explosion on Thursday.

‘Lava flow mixed with steam – caused huge explosion – group pelted with boiling rocks and steam,’ the BBC’s global science correspondent, Rebecca Morelle, tweeted.

She reported an estimated eight people suffered head injuries, burns, cuts and bruises.
