  • Only a few of Guatemala volcano’s dead identified

Police officers carry a wounded man after the eruption of the Fuego Volcano, in El Rodeo village, Escuintla department, 35 km south of Guatemala City on 3 June, 2018. Rescuers were concerned about possible dangers posed not only by more volcanic flows but also rain. Guatemalan prosecutors ordered an investigation into whether emergency protocols were followed properly, as many residents were caught by the eruption with little or no time to evacuate.

Fuego volcano erupted around noon on Sunday and lava began flowing down in the afternoon. Guatemala's national disaster agency suspended search and rescue efforts at the zone devastated by the eruption, saying climatic conditions and still-hot volcanic material makes it unsafe for the rescuers.

Fuego volcano exploded around noon on June 3, affecting more than 1.7 million people.

As dawn broke today, the volcano continued to rattle with what Guatemala's Volcanology Institute said were eight to 10 moderate eruptions per hour - vastly less intense than Monday's big blasts.

A short video posted by the agency showed a steady flow of traffic away from the volcano to the sound of a blaring alarm.

It said the lahars could sweep down the mountain laden with concrete, rocks up to a meter (yard) in diameter and tree trunks.

Thousands of people displaced by the eruption have sought refuge in shelters, many of them of with dead or missing loved ones and facing an uncertain future, unable to return to homes destroyed by the volcano.

The agency known as Conred also says the number of people in shelters is now 2,625.

At midday on Tuesday, the National Forensics Institute said it had counted 72 bodies, including a child who died in hospital suffering severe burns.

Rainfall is complicating efforts to recover bodies in villages devastated by the eruption of Guatemala's Volcano of Fire, and some locals say many remains will never be removed.

Diego Ibarguen, who works for a local firefighter support organisation, said: "Basically there's no houses left, and to my assumption there's nobody left there. except the people doing the search and rescue".

The JDC said that it had "activated its emergency response network to contact both the Guatemalan Jewish community and other NGO partners to assess immediate needs and implement a response following the eruption of the volcano, which killed more than 70 people with almost 200 people still missing".

Guatemala's Volcano of Fire is continuing to burst out rocks and ash, almost two days after a major eruption that killed at least 69 people.

Authorities said explosions from the volcano, which again streamed pyroclastic flows Tuesday, are threatening villages southeast of the mountain.

The volcano has been in eruption since 2002.
