MAUROLE: More than 500 people have been evacuated from a tiny Indonesian island where a volcano erupted at the weekend, spewing rocks and lava that killed five villagers. Mount Rokatenda, on Palue island in East Nusa Tenggara province, threw red-hot ash two kilometers (1.2 miles) into the sky on Saturday and unleashed torrents of molten lava onto a beach, killing three adults and two children as they slept.
