Ash from Chilean volcano continues to disrupt flights

An ash cloud from a Chilean volcano continues to cause travel disruptions in South America, but also as far away as Australia and New Zealand.In parts of Argentina the ash has forced the closure of roads and schools, leaving a grey blanket across a wide area.

Officials say the volcano's latest eruptions are not as high as earlier ones, down from 12,000 to 5,000 metres. However, that doesn't mean the effect has diminished, they say, warning that no one knows what the volcano will do in the short or medium term and what the effects will be.
