Lava from Canary Island volcano heads towards the sea

Giant rivers of lava are sliding slowly but relentlessly towards the sea after a volcano erupted in the Canary Islands on Sunday, destroying everything in its path.

Evacuations to help avoid casualties have been taking place on the island of La Palma, and authorities told people to stay indoors with their doors and windows closed.
