Toll rises to 62 as volcano Fuego shoots ash and rocks into sky

Some 1.7 million people had been affected when the volcano erupted on Sunday, shooting a dense cloud of ash into the sky and sending a hail of fiery rock fragments and scalding mud down the mountainside, burying homes.

Fuego has been erupting since 2002, and was continuously active in 2017.

The last emergency occurred in September 2012, causing the evacuation of some 10,000 people from villages on its slopes.
