Five more lifeless bodies found on Japan volcano


TOKYO: The lifeless bodies of five more people have been discovered on the Japanese volcano that erupted at the weekend, officials said, taking to 36 the feared death toll. The news came as rescuers called off their search for the day because soaring levels of poisonous fumes from the continuing eruption were making it dangerous. Mount Ontake erupted around lunchtime on Saturday, when its slopes were busy with walkers enjoying the autumn scenery.
