GUATEMALANS have buried relatives and friends killed in Fuego’s deadly eruption. The eruption is the most violent Guatemala has seen in four decades, after dangerous flows of ash, rocks and toxic gases were unleashed from the volcano.

At least 109 people were killed by a massive eruption on Sunday that buried villagers in scalding ash, gas, with some dying later in hospital from their burns.

Nearly 200 people are still missing after Sunday’s blast.

The threat of fresh landslides forced emergency workers Thursday to suspend a search for victims of a major eruption of Guatemala’s Fuego volcano.

While Hawaii’s Kilauea’s volcano has produced extremely hot and relatively slow moving lava flows, which have engulfed hundreds of structures, Guatemala’s Fuego ejected much more dangerous pyroclastic flows, which kill everything in their path because they travel so fast and so far.
