A volcano on the Indonesian island of Bali is rumbling and spewing smoke up to 3,000 metres into the sky. Authorities have ordered mass evacuations from areas near it.

Bali's international airport also closed, canceling hundreds of flights and leaving tens of thousands of travelers stranded, after tests indicated ash had reached its air space.
