  • Description

    Red-hot lava slowly flowing down the slopes of Mount Etna was on Sunday threatening the interdemiary station of a cable car used to take tourists and scientists almost to the volcano's summit.

    The lava has already engulfed several pylons on the upper part of the cable car system, and has destroyed a 100 year-old observatory high on the mountain.

    The lava has been flowing from three new opening since the volcano's most vigorous series of eruptions for 10 years began three weeks ago.

    Scientists say that so far there is no danger to inhabited areas or cultivated land.
